  • The Culloden Experience Virtual Tour
    In this most insightful and in-depth virtual tour, by two tour guides who live in Culloden itself (between the Battlefield and Culloden House), we take you on a two and a half hour fascinating journey of remarkable insight into many aspects of Culloden that you would most likely miss if you visited or went on a traditional tour. As such, this virtual tour is very complementary to our minibus tours of Culloden. In this tour we take you into Culloden House and share the history that is 'hidden in plain sight'. We explore how Culloden House was before, during and after the battle. We share precious, rare artefacts that we own that came from Culloden House and we tell stories of Duncan Forbes, the Laird of Culloden, Simon 'The Fox' Fraser (Jamies' grandfather in Outlander) and of course Bonnie Prince Charlie. We then visit Culloden Battlefield, then Culloden Woods, and share with you the tragic events that unfolded on that fateful day - the end of the Jacobite Rebellion and in many ways, the start of the end of the Highland and clan-based way of life. This live tour next takes place on Saturday 12th February 2022, both at 4.00pm UK/SCOTTISH time. We now also have a recorded 2.25 hour version of this tour which is available on a 24 hour rental on our video-on-demand (VoD) channel.
