Rare items to be on show in Inverness

Detail from Culloden Battle plan
Culloden Battle plan.

A plan of the Battle of Culloden is one of the treasures from the national collections which is visiting Inverness in September. Drawn around 2 years after the defeat of Jacobite forces in 1745, the plan gives important details about the battle.

It travels to the Highlands as part of the National Library of Scotland roadshow from 13-15 September. Also on display will be an engraving of a scene from the battle and two broadsides of Highland interest, while more recent material will be available for browsing.

NLS staff will be on hand to provide specialist knowledge and advice. A series of events will include talks on family history and Highland maps, and films from the Scottish Screen Archive.
