It was probably the most beautiful and saddest place I have ever visited. There's so much history there! To be able to walk in the Moor where so many lives were slaughtered is something between painful and mind blowing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

The battlefield is haunting and a very solemn place. Worth the whole walk. The visitor center is definitely worth the money, it is a full experience audio and visually through the time period leading up to the battle at Culloden. Amazing artifacts on display. The cafe was very pleasant and a nice place to regroup with hot tea and lunch after a chilly afternoon.

We bought this in advance, then exchanged our voucher for a ticket at the Visitor Centre. The main reason for doing this was to pay on our credit cards in advance. We paid for as much online as we could so we could charge less often while there and take less cash with us.

This was an amazing start to our holiday, part of a road trip around the uk. Our trip to Culloden was brilliant, informative. highly recommend this trip especially if you love history and the series of Outlander, really brings things to life.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2017

You can walk the battle ground for free, but the walk thru the museum is well worth the money!

Having read all the Outlander books and watched the TV program this gave me a visual for the book. Great tour as you could wander on you own and find and see what you wanted to.
