Culloden is a small Scottish village, close to Inverness in the Highlands region, and the site of the Battle of Culloden in 1746, scene of the final defeat of the Jacobite Rebellion and the dashing of Bonny Prince Charlie's hopes to supplant King George II by restoring the Stuart Dynasty to the thrones of Scotland and England.

Get in

Culloden is off the B9006, some 5 miles east of Inverness.

By car

Car access is probably the easiest way to reach the battlefield (parking available). There are some alternatives however...

By bus

Rapson’s Coaches (No 7) from the Post Office, Queensgate, Inverness; (01463) 710555. Inverness City Sightseeing tour bus, May to Sep; (0871) 666 0000


  • Culloden Battlefield [1], Culloden (approx. 6 miles/10km east of Inverness), tel 01463 790607, admission £5 adult. Although not very close to Inverness, the Cullodon Visitor Centre [2] (administered by the National Trust for Scotland) is a major attraction to Inverness visitors. The last major Scottish battle took place in Culloden with a devastating defeat of the Jacobites, led by Bonnie Prince Charlie, by the government forces. After the battle a lot changed for the Scottish. They weren't allowed to wear their tartans, playing bagpipe was against the law and the clan system was destroyed. You can visit the battlefield for free or take a look into the Visitor Centre for information of the battle and a video presentation. The exhibition is £5.00/3.75 (adult/concession).
