 Culloden
Culloden is the story of a battle and of what followed, the destruction of a way of life and the persecution of a people.
Culloden recalls them by name and action, presenting the battle as it was for them, describing their lives as fugitives in the glens or as prisoners in the gaols and hulks, their transportation to the Virginias or their deaths on the gallows at Kennington Common.
Culloden reminds us, too, that many of the men who harried the glens as ruthlessly as the Nazis in Occupied Europe were in fact Scots themselves, and that many men in Prince Charles' army had been forced to join him.
