Located at the heart of the city just below the castle, the museum and art gallery is a great place to explore the art, history and heritage of the Highlands. In the museum there is Highland silver and gold, rare Pictish stones and even a stuffed puma named Felicity, captured locally and then kept in a wildlife park. The Art Gallery displays a year-round programme of temporary exhibitions by local, national, and international artists.
It was here on the 16th April 1746 that the hopes of the Jacobite Movement finally came to a dramatic end. On one side was the Jacobite forces of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, also known as Bonnie Prince Charlie and on the other the government forces of Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland. Both men were 25 years old, William having celebrated his birthday the day before the battle.
