In advance of the 275th anniversary of the Battle of Culloden, join the National Trust for Scotland’s Raoul Curtis-Machin and historian Murray Pittock for a virtual walk of the battlefield, where they will share how the latest historical and archaeological research is leading to a new understanding of how the moor’s landscape affected the battle itself. This new research is informing the community’s urgent efforts to protect the battlefield from encroaching development. The two will also discuss the challenge of balancing historical integrity with the business needs of a top international tourist attraction.
