Culloden Battlefield Photos

The Culloden Moor Battlefield and Visitor Centre is where Bonnie Prince Charlie & his Scottish Jacobite troops lost to English soldiers on April 16, 1746. The loss led to a suppression of Scottish rights, independence and culture. Visitors on walking the fields and reading the extensive museum displays learn why this land was the worse possible place for the Scots to fight. The land & visitor centre museum is run by the National Trust for Scotland (NTS).
