Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to Culloden – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

This property is part of the ‘We’re Good to Go’ scheme, which means we have carried out an official COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have everything in place to reopen safely.


We have to limit the numbers of visitors in Culloden Visitor Centre at any one time so that we avoid overcrowding and ensure physical distancing. We also want to try and avoid long queues of traffic at the entrance.

We have set up a pre-booking system to make your arrival at Culloden easier and safer.

We strongly advise that you pre-book before travelling to Culloden. If you do not pre-book, we cannot guarantee entry to the visitor centre and you may be turned away.

Book your time slot to arrive at Culloden Visitor Centre

For a visit to the museum and battlefield we recommend approximately 2 hours to make the most of your trip, although avid history fans can easily spend 3–4 hours on site.
