Historic Scotland Battlefields



For those of you who are interested in learning more about Scottish history, here's an article from the BBC website about a new database of Historic Scotland Battlefields.

"Thirty-nine sites of violent clashes on Scottish soil have been officially recognised in Scotland's Inventory of Historic Battlefields.  The database has been put together by Historic Scotland to give greater protection to the sites and to act as a guide to planning authorities.  It includes famous battles such as Bannockburn, Culloden and Killiecrankie."

The database mentioned in the article is here: Historic Scotland Battlefields

It looks like an interesting site to explore!

(I took this photo of the Fraser clan stone at Culloden on my trip to Scotland in July.)
