Baron Culloden (named after Culloden near Inverness) is a title that has been created twice, both times for members of the British Royal Family. Its use continued the tradition of awarding members of the Royal Family titles from each of the three Kingdoms that made up the United Kingdom: England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The first creation was on 27 November 1801 for Prince Adolphus Frederick, seventh son of King George III. He was created Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Tipperary and Baron of Culloden in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. This title became extinct on the 17 March 1904 on the death of his son Prince George, the second holder.

The second creation was on 31 March 1928 for Prince Henry, third son of King George V. He was created Duke of Gloucester, Earl of Ulster and Baron Culloden, again in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. The title is currently held by his son Prince Richard, the second Duke. It is used as a courtesy title by the Duke's grandson Xan, Lord Culloden, son of Alexander, Earl of Ulster.
