Save your money and read a good history of this turning point in UK history. Maybe it was the hoard of children screaming and unsupervised by adults which kept us from learning much of anything from the museum's displays. On the other hand, it could...More

Visiting Culloden opened a whole new adventure box for me. It connected many thoughts and events knocking around in my head! Made me look at my husband and connect the dots to him being Scottish and researched he’s of the MacFarlan clan. Such a tragic...More

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?
