Culloden Battlefield, Scotland

This is the Leanach Cottage on Culloden Battlefield, and is the only building remaining from the time of the famous battle in which the Jacobites were soundly defeated in 1746. It continued to be occupied up until 1912, and is now maintained in its current condition, though visitors are no longer allowed inside. We walked the solemn battlefield which is a mass graveyard, peaceful and quiet on a cloudy day, accompanied by a historian who is steeped in the stories and mythology of Scottish history.
