Lord Roberts and staff at Cumberland Stone, Culloden Moor, near Inverness

Lord Roberts, members of his staff, and other officials at the Cumberland Stone, Culloden in 1893. Lord Roberts served in the Indian Mutiny in 1857, the Abyssinian campaign in 1867-8 and the Afghanistan campaign in 1878-80. In 1895 he was appointed Field Marshall and took command of the British forces in the South African or Boer War in 1899. He was granted the Freedom of the Burgh of Inverness in 1893.

The Cumberland Stone lies east of the old Leanach Cottage on Culloden Moor, near Inverness. It is an enormous boulder which is associated with the Duke of Cumberland. It is said he directed the Battle of Culloden (1746) from the top of the boulder. However, as he was on horseback between his first and second lines during the action this claim may not be true
