Scotland - Culloden Battlefield [03:29]
We were heading back from our three-day Timberbush Tours trip to the Highlands and Skye. Angela, our driver/guide, suggested stopping at Culloden. Since none of us had ever been there before, we all jumped at the chance. We arrived late in the day with just enough time to watch the amazing 360 degree filmed re-enactment of the battle, check out a few of the museum exhibits and walk the battlefield itself. When I got to the memorial cairn I realized it was actually the anniversary of the battle.

The Battle of Culloden - April 16th 1746 - marked the fall of the Jacobite rebellion of 1745, which sought to restore the Stuart monarchy to the throne. In barely 40 minutes of fighting, the massed army of Bonnie Prince Charlie had been slaughtered by government troops (which also contained Scottish clans) led by the Duke of Cumberland. There was no mercy for the wounded soldiers, many were slaughtered where they had fallen, and those who had managed to flee were hunted down and executed. Bonnie Prince Charlie managed to evade the Government forces, and after five months on the run throughout the Highlands, escaped to Italy via the Isle of Skye, never to return. Between 1500 and 2000 Jacobites were killed or wounded in the battle, while Government losses were lighter with 50 dead and 259 wounded. The aftermath of the battle and subsequent crackdown on Jacobitism was brutal, earning Cumberland the sobriquet "Butcher". The conflict was the last battle fought on British soil. Culloden is near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands.
