Battle of Culloden on Drummossie Moor 16th April 1746

The battle of Culloden took place on the 16th April 1746 on Drummossie Moor which overlooks Inverness 
The battle lasted only about one hour and was the last pitched battle on British soil. 
It is better to search about this battle and then make your own mind up from what you read. 
No way was the battle just between the Scottish and the English. The brutality should never be forgotten, in my mind!  

As an ex services man who served in the 1st Battalion The Royal Scots late 50s early 60s to walk on this battlefield for the fist time, made me shiver. The photos I took are the only ones one's I wanted to,  the small cottage was taken from nearly every angle I could think of, apart from above.
