Cairn at Culloden Moor, July 1933

This photo, taken in July 1933, shows a frontal view of the Cairn at Culloden Moor, standing 20 feet in height. Erected by Duncan Forbes of Culloden in 1881, in memory of the fallen Jacobites in the 45 Rebellion, the inscription on the plaque reads:

'The Battle of Culloden was fought on this moor 16th April, 1746. The graves of the Gallant Highlanders who fought for Scotland and Prince Charlie are marked by the names of their clans'.

The Battle of Culloden was the last pitched battle fought on British soil. It was on Culloden Moor that the Jacobite army of Prince Charles Edward Stuart was finally defeated by the army of the Hanoverian King, George II, under the leadership of the Duke of Cumberland.
