A very interesting visit to see the battlefield and the visitor centre which is quite modern but in keeping with the surroundings. There is a very nice cafe and also a museum outlining the history of the battle. The battlefield is well presented with flags and signs showing where opposing side faced up to each other.
A very informative and respectful honouring of the history of this site. Particularly enjoyed the presentations and guided walking tour of the battlefield. Exhibit is fantastically informative and the bonus of a free Audio Guide with admission really was incredible. Give yourself a couple hours here and make sure you stop by the cafe for delicious Lunch and Coffee to warm up after walking the field. A must do when you visit Scotland!!
