Culloden Battlefield

You are here Home  > Military >  Culloden Battlefield

The Battle of Culloden was a deadly and failed uprising that resulted in the deaths of around 1,500 to about 2,000. Hundreds of years later, some people happen to notice the gloomy atmosphere still surrounding the open. The ghosts of highlanders are seen here, and, as the anniversary of the battle approaches (April 16th), activity is said to rise.

  1. To give better details of the battle it was the last throw of the dice for Bonnie Prince Charlie who had gotten as far as Nottingham before his rebellion fell apart. Only half the clans had rallied to him and the English had not risen up in support. He was in full retreat at this point pursued by Charles Augustus, the king’s son with an army trained to fight the highlander tactics.

    Before this battle Charlie had tried a night march to surprise the British but his troops had gotten lost, turned back and so when the day dawned most were exhausted before the first shot was fired. when the british started the battle with artillery fire Charlie froze and his men were subjected to artillery fire for between 20-90 minutes, reports vary, until discipline cracked and started to charge , not in any plan but a disorganized mob.

    the ground in front of the left flank was muddy and this slowed part down allowing British musket fire to be concentrated on the differing groups. Those that got into range to use their swords found that the troops, instead of running as others had, were well trained in how to counter them. It was, in short, a slaughter of men watching their cause die as they themselves were exhausted and forced into a fight they knew was all but hopeless. if anything is going to cause hauntings, you’ve got a perfect storm right there.

  2. About twenty years ago I was driving from Inverness to Croy which is just past the battlefield it was at night and I had a couple of friends in the car with me. As we were driving past the battlefield this figure which I think looked like a hooded monk but could have been a highland warrior walked from the battlefield across the road toward balloch and disappeared. I couldn’t believe my eyes
