Having minimal knowledge of Scottish history prior to visiting this battlefield, I found the entire experience incredibly informative and clarifying.

The visitor center is excellent, with fixed and live exhibits. Then you can wander the battlefield itself.

The visitor centre was well done and there was plenty of info. The battlefield is able to be walked on which was nice. The rocks with the names of the clans on them was good too. A very emotional place and somewhat eerie.

The visitor center is very through in presenting what happened here. The visual presentation was informative and desperately sad in showing how many men died here.

This was our second visit to the new visitor centre, and while the interactive exhibits were still impressive, we were disappointed that the personal information headphones to take out to the battlefield were no longer available. Also, the paths were untreated and treacherous. We appreciate...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?
