Gallery of the battle of Culloden
Historic Scotland are aiming to return the battlefield into what they consider is was like in 1745. There is no actual record of what the site was actually like in 1745 although the Chevalier de Johnstone in his memoirs states that he was exhausted running from the Jacobite lines towards the Hanoverian lines because of the soft boggy ground. He never got near the enemy lines. Most of the photographs were taken in 2012 and reflect the present decision of Historic Scotland to leave the site in its natural state.
270th Anniversary of the battle of Culloden
On 16 April 2016 it was the 270th anniversary of the battle of Culloden. Over 400 people from all over the Word attended in various versions of Highland dress. Many represented Clans and associated societies with a Jacobite interest. A programme was in place to mark the occasion in which pipe music was played and prayers spoken in the Gaelic language were made to the fallen. In all a very moving service and many brought wreaths to lay at the foot of the Culloden Memorial. The day was similar to the day the battle was fought. A strong wind was blowing but from the north not the east as in 1746. There was a little hail but this did not last any length of time. Interested parties met at Culloden Centre and walked, to the sound of pipes, to the Memorial.
