New images of Gareth Hoskins' Culloden centre
Gareth Hoskins Architects has released more images of the new Culloden Battlefield Memorial Centre, which is to officially open its doors on the 16 April – the 262nd anniversary of the battle.

The Glasgow-based practice’s design was the result of an international design competition held by the National Trust for Scotland back in 2004.

The project includes the reinterpretation and reinstatement of the landscape of the battlefield and a new 2,400 sq m building that was designed in collaboration with international exhibition designers Ralph Appelbaum Associates and with input from historians and archaeologists.

The building was also designed with sustainability in mind, positioned to reduce wind-chill and to take advantage of natural daylight, with underfloor heating powered by a woodchip burning biomass boiler system, and built from locally sourced larch, Caithness stone and site-salvaged field stone.

Today is also the closing date of The National Trust’s campaign to find youngsters descended from the Jacobites and Redcoats to open the new centre.
