Culloden is a census-designated place (CDP) and unincorporated community in Cabell and Putnam counties in the U.S. state of West Virginia. As of the 2010 census, the CDP population was 3,061 (2,683 in Cabell County, 378 in Putnam County). The Cabell County portion of Culloden is part of the Huntington-Ashland, WV-KY-OH Metropolitan Statistical Area, while the Putnam County portion is considered part of the Charleston, WV Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The community was named by L. R. White, who lost a leg while working for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. White was asked to name the town upon the establishment of its post office and train station; he suggested "Culloden" because there were so few places with that name in the United States.
