Well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the highlands. The visitor centre provides a lot of information on life in the highlands around the 1745 rebellion, the battle itself, and the brutal aftermath which brought an end to the clan system
I recommend going to see the Culloden Battlefield site as it’s a huge part of Scottish history. You can go by the Inverness Sightseeing bus which drops you off just outside and hop back on whenever you wish. There is a coffee shop and gift shop selling tasteful Scottish souvenirs. On 16 April 1746,…
Culloden Moor where the Jacobites were finally defeated by government soldiers in 1746, the last battle to be fought on British soil. You will have time to walk on the battlefield and learn more about this tragic event that killed 700 Highland clansmen in three minutes.
Culloden Battlefield is perfect for getting your history fix, and with their new museum they have really brought that day to life.
Get immersed in the history of the Battle of Culloden. The visitor centre provides and interactive experience with tour guides to talk you through the events that took place on the day.

Point of Interest
“Clava Cairns or the Prehistoric Burial Cairns of Bulnuaran of Clava are a group of three Bronze Age cairns located near Inverness. A hugely significant and exceptionally well preserved prehistoric site, Clava Cairns is a fantastic example of the distant history of Highland Scotland, dating back about 4,000 years. The cemetery was used in two periods. At around 2000 BC a row of large cairns was built, three of which can still be seen today. A thousand years later the cemetery was reused and new burials were placed in some of the existing cairns and three smaller monuments were built including a 'kerb cairn'. Traces of a smaller cemetery can also be seen at Milton of Clava, a short distance up the valley to the west. The cairns at Balnuaran of Clava extended along a gravel terrace raised above the River Nairn. Excavations have found evidence for farming on the site before any of these monuments were built. The settlement was directly replaced by the cairns and it even seems possible that some of the material used to build them had been taken from demolished houses.”
