Planning your visit

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. 

Included in the cost of admission is a guided tour of the battlefield with one of our expert guides. 

Car parking is free for members of the National Trust for Scotland. There are designated disabled bays, motorcycle bays and large spaces for coaches and motor homes. Cycle racks are also available.

Dogs are welcome on the battlefield but please keep them under close control and pick up after them. Only assistance dogs are allowed inside the visitor centre.

Drones are not allowed over the battlefield.

Every penny spent on site, from the car park to the café, goes back into helping us conserve the battlefield and protecting our heritage for the future.
