Banned from picnicking on Culloden war graves
Hundreds of Jacobite and English soldiers were hastily buried in shallow graves there after the battle in April 1746.
But locals say visitors have been disrespecting the dead.
Alasdair MacNeil, of Jacobite society A Circle Of Gentlemen, said: "A family of four and their two dogs were sprawled across a grave mound having a picnic.
"The father was leaning against the headstone eating a Scotch egg and smoking a cigarette."
My god Nige, how could you, don't you know how many calories are in those things!
Alasdair said he would not expect such behaviour to be acceptable at World War I battlefields such as Flanders or Ypres.
He added: "Many people come to Culloden because it is a revered place and to find their relatives."
The society have asked the National Trust for Scotland, who own the battlefield, to step in.
A spokeswoman said: "We are currently having signs made up which explain that the battlefield is a war grave and asking visitors to behave accordingly!
Quite Right too, these ghouls are a bloody nuisance!
I like others have had enough of the profanaties and sheer disregard for other peoples feelings on this board,even after just a few posts i cannot continue any longer. Goodbye to any of the decent people on here if indeed there are any.
