Culloden has to be one of the most atmospheric historic sites that I have ever been to. It is one of those rare places where the events of the past seem to have been soaked up by the landscape and it is not hard at all to imagine what happened there; it has that intangible factor that heritage experts are fond of calling ?a sense of place?. So many historical attractions that I visit tend to be an assault on the senses, an overload of information or a route march through the site by bored guides.

To be honest, this is not ‘my’ period of history, however, last summer, after reading the Cross Stitch series of books by Diana Gabaldon, I became quite interested in the Jacobite period, and persuaded my long suffering father to drive me to Culloden! Now for a bit of historical background... The Duke of Cumberland leading the Hanoverian army had ... Read the complete review
