Wow. This place is so emotional. Here is where the death of a culture happened. The clan system was destroyed. So much slaughter in the space of an hour. It's deeply moving. It makes you appreciate life, the sacrifice of all warriors regardless of what...More

My wife and I visited in June, 2017 and was impressed. The museum takes great efforts to give a balanced view of history and gives a realistic view of what it was like at that time (both for Scotland and the world).

It's evocative with the moor flowers brightly covering a gruesome battle ground. It is tastefully done, but doesn't shy away from the facts of the slaughter of brave lives. Whatev r your politics, it is fascinating how the Highlanders fought for what they believed in,...More

Stopped by Culloden as it is somewhere I've always wanted to go. I found the visitors centre to be very good and informative. The staff were very helpful, and the grounds were outstanding. Very moving experience for me, and so glad I made the trip!

The whole place is very well put together. Visitors centre and battlefield. Not great to have a parking charge on top of high entrance fee . Overall good experience. Friendly staff

A really fantastic insight into such a horrific battle. The museum displays are excellent and that audio visual room is very disturbing be careful if you suffer from vertigo maybe give that bit a miss. Battlefield itself has a sort of un earthly calm. A...More

About how long do you think you spent there? We are trying to figure out how much time to allow for this on our way to Skye.

We are staying in Inverness and would like to see the Culloden Battlefield. I see tickets for the Visitor Center but how does one get there? Is there a bus? If you buy the Visitor Center admission ticket does that include transportation from Inverness?

No. The ticket you buy at the visitor center is for admission to that facility and the battlefield. We had a car so we drove. Ask your hotel. Have you tried Uber?

There did seem to be some coaches, but we travelled by car, so I am not sure.
