Culloden – 270th Anniversary Commemoration

Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre - April 2016 2

It was incredibly emotional and moving to witness the commemorations surrounding the 270th anniversary of the Battle of Culloden.

The battle was fought on 16th April 1746 at Culloden Moor between the Jacobite Army led by Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) and the Government Army led by the Duke of Cumberland. The battle was a resounding defeat for the Jacobites Army and effectively ended the Jacobites dream of returning a Stuart King to the throne of Great Britain.
