Culloden Battlefield

Culloden Battlefield,Inverness Information
Scene of the last major battle fought on mainland Britain. The final Jacobite uprising ended here on 16th April 1746, when the army of Prince Charles Edward Stuart was crushed by the Government forces, led by the Duke of Cumberland. Turf and stone dykes which played a crucial part in the battle have been reconstructed on their original site, and a small flock of Hebridean sheep is grazing here as they did in 1746, as part of the Trust's long term project to remove scrub and restore the field to its state at the time of the battle. The original Leanach Cottage has been restored several times and is now open to the public, with Living History presentations during summer. The Visitor Centre houses a permanent Jacobite exhibition, including an 18th century sampler commemorating the battle.
