Attraction Information

  • Parks and Playgrounds icon Parks and Playgrounds

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Culloden Wood offers an ideal site for a family ramble, with way marked trails offering either a 3km trip including several local landmarks or a much shorter one in and out of the trees for those with smaller legs.

It's also an area full of history: the trees cover part of the site of the battle of Culloden (the last battle fought on British soil) and the Prisoners' Stone is a grim reminder of those days… this is where the last 17 of Prince Charles' troops were executed by firing squad. The brutal folk of the Jacobite Army then bashed in the bonces of the shot soldiers to be sure.Despite all this, one of them, Fraser, survived and managed to sneak away and escape! A gory story but with a great message: never give up!

Also don't forget to take a few coins for making a wish or 2 in St Mary's Well, though tradition dictates that if it's a wish for healing then you're better off to leave a scrap of cloth belonging to the poorly person… nonsense of course but the nice kind!

Please note that the postcode provided is for Satnav to get you close but please plan your journey thoroughly and independently.
