Culloden  Inverness Shire

 

In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Culloden like this:

Culloden, ry. sta., in co. and 3¼ miles NE. of Inverness; 2 miles SE., on border of Nairnshire, is Culloden Moor (part of Drummossie Moor), where the Highlanders under Prince Charles Edward were defeated by the royal troops under the Duke of Cumberland, and the cause of the Stuarts was finally crushed, 16th April 1746. Stones bearing the names of the clans have been erected at the head of the graves or trenches where the Highlanders were buried. C. House, where Prince Charles lodged the night preceding the battle, is ¾ mile SE. of ry. sta.
