Today, the Visitor Centre is dedicated to retelling the events of the battle and the battlefield has been reconstructed in memorial to the Jacobites’ defeat, with burial sites and flags marking out their positions at the battle’s gruesome end. The moving tribute to Scottish history continues with a filmshow and interactive exhibition in the Visitor Centre, live presentations given in the nearby Leanach Cottage, the site of the Government troop hospital and tours of the battlefield that bring to life the short but bloody battle that saw 1,500 lives lost in under an hour.
