The 1746 Battle of Culloden was the final, spectacularly violent and muddy, rainy fight between the Hanoverians and Jacobites, which ended in triumph for the government's army, led by the charismatic Duke of Cumberland, who sent troops back to the battlefield the following day to kill any survivors and gained the epithet of 'Butcher' for insisting on the execution of all the Jacobite rebel lords afterwards.

So many supporters of the Stuart kings were slaughtered at Culloden that they could only be buried in mass graves, so local reports of disembodied screams and battle cries, sounds of marching, poltergeist activity and wild variations in temperature near the graves are almost a prerequisite, but the Great Culloden Scree, a great black bird, has also been spotted , appearing from within a shroud of mist, by many separate witnesses. It is said to embody the spirit of Lord George Murray, the Jacobite commander, and was first seen on the eve of the battle itself.
