Culloden House


The house that exists stands on the foundations of a house where Bonnie Prince Charlie is said to have stayed with the Forbes family before the disastrous battle of Culloden in 1746.

After the Jacobite's defeat the house was destroyed in reprisal by the Duke of Cumberland Traditionally the house is said to be haunted by the ghost of Bonnie Prince although why he should return here after such a short stay is not recorded.

The story about the haunting is likely to be only folklore perhaps stemming from the memory of the house being destroyed in 1746 so soon after the battle.
