    October 2, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    The battle of culloden was the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising. On 16 April 1746 the battle between them and the British Army was over in an hour.
    Between 1,500 and 2,000 Jacobites were killed or wounded in contrast to 300 to 400 of the British Army.
    We nearly froze standing listening to the guide and thinking of those poor exhausted soldiers battling in the muddy marshland. Yes it was very confronting.
    We walked through the woods and later went into Inverness for the day. The kids found 4 Geocaches ..with mums help.
    It was great to relax at a Scottish pub for tea at the end of a long day.
