Posted by admin on Dec 17, 2012

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. Less well known Alford and Skirmish Hill also feature. Work started on the inventory about four years ago with the public consulted on battlefields suggested for inclusion.
