This beautiful glen is the site of the infamous massacre of 13 February 1692. Soldiers of the Earl of Argyll's Regiment turned on their MacDonald hosts in an action designed to set an example to others who were slow to swear the Oath of Allegiance to the new monarchs William and Mary. Betraying the hospitality they received while billeted in the glen, the troops murdered about 30 of their hosts though many others escaped.


Accessible at all times. The Glencoe Folk Museum is open seasonally and has an admission charge.
