Culloden Battlefied, Inverness, Scotland

This afternoon, I am posting information on Culloden Battlefield in the Highlands of Scotland.

Culloden (Drumossie Moor) lies a few miles east of Inverness. It was here, on April 16th 1746, that occurred the last battle on British soil. This battle represented the culmination of a series of military adventures starting with the 1690 Battle of the Boyne in Ireland driven by the House of Stuart to reclaim the thrones of Scotland and England which were vacated in 1688 when King James II of England ( James VII of Scotland) was forced into exile by the Protestant establishment owing to his Roman Catholic leanings.
