Leanach Cottage

This photograph shows the old Leanach Cottage on Culloden Moor near Inverness. It is said to date from the time of the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Tradition has it that after the battle, thirty Jacobites took refuge in one of its outbuildings. They were discovered by Government troops who locked them in and set fire to the building, burning them alive.

The cottage was inhabited until 1912. It has been restored, with some alterations, and stands next to the Visitor Centre at Culloden Battlefield.
