Silent Sunday: Culloden

On 16 April 1746, the Jacobite Rising came to a head at Culloden and the repercussions, especially on the Gaelic culture of the Highlands, were felt for many generations.

We visited Culloden at the beginning of February and even though the battle fought here happened a long time ago, you can still feel something in the air.

Over the coming weeks I will be sharing more photographs and a few poems I wrote while we were here.

Wishing you all a blessed Sunday and a peaceful new week,

with love from Xenia xxx
