Knowing the area well and with an interest in the Rebellion of the 45, there are a number of tales connected to the battle and the nearby Culloden House Hotel. The best I've heard recently was regarding the B9006 near Kilravock Castle. This was the route taken by the Jacobite on the abortive night march to surprise the Hanovarian army who were camped at Nairn. Apparently the sounds of the march can sometimes be heard at night, this has been witnessed by two elderly women who live in the area and claim to have heard the noise about five times over the years. There is a great atmosphere in Culloden woods and especially around the Culwhiniac farm area. The other legend is the Great Skree of Culloden a large bird that is said to have appeared on the day of the battle 16th April 1746 and was reputed to be a bad Omen for the Jacobite army.
