Culloden House & Battlefield

Culloden House is THE place to stay in the Highlands.  I’m already planning to go back to the Highlands with my Mom and stay here at Culloden House again along with a stop at Windsor Castle to see the Queen’s ledger stone.

Culloden House

DISCOVER THE LUXURIOUS CULLODEN HOUSE
At the time of the Jacobite uprising in 1745-46, Bonnie Prince Charlie used Culloden House as his lodging and battle headquarters prior to that fateful battle on Culloden Moor.
Today, this historic Inverness luxury hotel stands in nearly 40 acres where you are free to wander about the woodland and private gardens to enjoy the exceptional peace, tranquility and majesty of the grounds.
Undoubtedly our greatest asset is the staff. Here Highland hospitality has been elevated to its highest art form without being “stuffy” nor too “proper” or reserved. After all you deserve, without compromise, the very best.

I previously stayed here for only one night and needless to say, I fell in love.

Kyle took some selfies!

And sung me Happy Birthday!

And greeted me in the morning with a flower!

Culloden Battlefield

I’ve posted before about Culloden Battlefield.  It is one of those places where you feel the events that took place there.  On April 16, 1746, the Jacobite Army was defeated by the British.  It marked the beginning of the end of the Scottish clan system.  Today, on the battleground, there is a visitor centre, a memorial cairn and clan grave markers.



Happy Travels
