Cumberland Stone at Culloden Moor

This photo shows a view of the Cumblerland Stone at Culloden moor, the site of the Battle of Culloden. Many stories surround this stone, particularly concerning the Battle of Culloden. One states that the Duke of Cumberland stood on this boulder while directing the battle against the Jacobites. However, this does not appear to have been the case, as historians now believe that the Duke was on horseback at the time.

Born William Augustus Hanover in London on the 15th April 1721, the Duke of Cumberland was the brother of Frederick, Prince of Wales, and the uncle of George III.
