ABOUT CULLODEN
At just four miles from the centre of Inverness and five miles from open countryside, Culloden has the benefits of both urban and rural living. The Culloden area is large, extending south from the A96 as far as Drumossie Moor, the site of the famous Battle of Culloden.

Technically a village, Culloden is unique for its mix of property styles, from country houses, tied cottages, local authority housing, architect-designed homes and new developments that offer blended accommodation, from affordable housing to strikingly contemporary apartments. This diversity creates a welcoming, inclusive community, further enhanced by a high level of services and facilities within a relatively short distance, given its comparatively small population. Culloden is renowned for its sensitive handling of the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The National Trust’s Visitor Centre is one of the most atmospheric sites in the country, attracting visitors from around the world and Culloden is rich with many other areas of interest. Culloden Woods is an ancient site popular with walkers and riders and features a Clutie Well and a marvellous Gruffalo Walk popular with families.

There are several primary schools, plus a large secondary school, which is earmarked for a complete renovation, a medical centre, dentists and a leisure centre with a swimming pool. Several places of worship are nearby and independent shops, bars and eateries, including award-winning Harry Gow’s head office, are all popular. With its proximity to Inverness, Nairn, the Scottish School of Forestry, Inverness Campus and Inverness Retail Park, Culloden is an excellent place for commuters and families, making it a great place to live, work, and visit.
