    Find out more about the events leading up to, during and after the Battle of Culloden at the new and award-winning visitor centre.

    The battle lines have been redrawn at the new Culloden battlefield experience. With the site restored to as close as possible to that seen by the forces on that fateful day in April 1746, Culloden now welcomes visitors with an impressive new visitor centre and exciting interactive exhibition.

    With over 1,200 dead in just one hour Culloden was a short but bloody battle - the last to be fought on British soil. Now all the family can experience and understand so much more about the events leading up to, during and after the battle. Follow characters who were actually involved in the battle around the interactive exhibition, experience the true horror of the battle in an immersive film, take a battlefield tour, and watch the daily Living History presentations which bring the battle to life.

    A hand held audio device with multi-language dialogue is available to take onto the battlefield to help you further understand the armies' tactics. Immerse yourself in the Scottish language Gaelic and hear the original words, song and music of the men and women who played their part in the fateful events. Displays of original Gaelic source material are shown through a variety of media.

    The visitor centre also includes a range of environmentally friendly facilities, including a memorabilia shop and a restaurant with a variety of delicious meals.
