Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Culloden (About this sound listen; from Scottish Gaelic C l lodain, "back of the small pond"; modern Gaelic C il Lodair) is the name of a village three miles east of Inverness, Scotland and the surrounding area. Three miles south of the village is Drummossie Moor (often called Culloden Moor), site of the Battle of Culloden. Culloden village was originally made up of estate houses attached to Culloden House. Historic buildings include Culloden House itself, which is now a hotel, the Culloden stables, now rebuilt as holiday homes, and the historic tithe barn which is now the Barn Church. In the 1960s an area near the historic village was drained for a council housing project, including Culloden Stores, Culloden Academy and Duncan Forbes Primary School, named after the Forbeses of Culloden, who owned Culloden House from 1626 to 1897.show more
