This small museum is located in a thatched house at the end of Glencoe village. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It has some interesting exhibitions about life in the Highlands in different times. It's worth a visit when in the area.

I loved the range of topics covered at the museum - from wars and the massacre, to everyday life and local industries. I recommend a stop! I didn’t see bathrooms or parking on site, so come prepared :)
