Culloden given go-ahead for visitor centre

  • Comment

Gareth Hoskins Architects has been given the go-ahead for its new visitor centre at Culloden - the site of the last major battle fought on mainland Britain. The scheme, for the National Trust for Scotland, will house an 'interpretation of the battle' as well educational and conference facilities, a café, restaurant, shop and staff accommodation. The practice has worked closely with archaeologists, landscape architects and the Inverness planners to develop a strategy for the entire 65ha site. A scheduled ancient monument, the battlefield was the scene of a bloody rout of Jacobite forces by government troops on 16 April 1746. The centre is due for completion in time for Scotland's Year of Highland Culture 2007, and construction work on the competition-winning project will start later this year.
