By Inverness

Scene of the last major battle fought on mainland Britain. The final Jacobite uprising ended here on 16 April, 1746, when the army of Prince Charles Edward Stuart was crushed by Government forces, led by the Duke of Cumberland. Turf and stone dykes which played a crucial part in the battle have been reconstructed on their original site as part of a long-term strategy to return the battlefield to its condition in 1746.The original Leanach Cottage, which survived the battle being fought around it, has now been restored. The site also contains the Graves of the Clans, the Well of the Dead, the Memorial Cairn, the Cumberland Stone and the Field of the English. The visitor centre houses a permanent Jacobite exhibition.  Audio visual…
