Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre
The climactic battle of the Jacobite rising of 1745 ended with Charles Edward Stuart being defeated by loyalist, William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland. This was the last set piece battle in the United Kingdom and ended the Jacobite uprising. The battle was decisive and resulted in between one and two thousand Jacobites dead within one hour.
