See its three exceptionally well-preserved burial cairns, each enclosed by stone circles. At Culloden Visitor Centre, the story unfolds of the crushing Hanoverian victory over Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Scottish clans. Then, visit Brodie Castle, the ancestral home of Clan Brodie, with an outstanding art collection and magnificent library. Back in Inverness, the rest of the day is at leisure.
