The Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre blog is as impressive as the place itself. This most recent post commemorates the 270th anniversary (tomorrow) of this decisive battle.
And in honour of the anniversary my book, The Silver Locket, will be free on Kindle for 5 days from tomorrow. The battle is central to the three 21st century children’s mission in the story. So, if you haven’t read it yet, your aged 9 to 90 – or older – and you like a good old adventure story, do give it a try.

Thanks for sharing the link Anne. Hope you’re well. It’s an interesting piece and I’ll comment there too. Nearby in Staffordshire, is Crown Meadows, where the ‘The Butcher’ camped and Cumberland House still stands in Stone high street (it’s a doctor’s surgery). Fascinating to think what would’ve happened if Charles Stuart hadn’t been persuaded to turn around at Derby……
Yes thanks, Richard, I’m very well. I hope you are too. And thanks too for visiting the blog. I didn’t know about Crown Meadows or Cumberland House. Yes, there’s a school of thought that thinks BPC would have won if he’d persevered and gone on from Derby. It’s a very interesting chapter from Scottish/British history and I’ve been fascinated by it since primary school.
I had fun taking my Glaswegian father-in-law around the sites here. You can imagine what he thought of Longshanks on the wall at Lichfield Cathedral !
Very interesting. I want to learn more.
Thanks Henry. It was certainly an exciting, romantic, bloody and definitive chapter in Scottish history.
