Owner description: Situated in the picturesque village of Glencoe, Glencoe & North Lorn Folk Museum is a must see for history enthusiasts and tourists alike. Housed in an Eighteenth Century thatched cottage, the museum collection includes a vast array of objects including costume and textiles, taxidermy, china and Jacobite memorabilia. The museum allows a unique insight into the rich, local history of Glencoe.

It's a good attraction. But should have someone explaining the attractions as you come closer to them. By the way, it's a good place to spend 30'.

We had such fun visiting this museum. Absolutely crammed with stuff - all sorts of gems hidden away in there and Lyn was so friendly and spent ages taliong to us about local history and the exhibits. There were even home baked haloween biscuits! A real little gem of a place - well worth popping in.

A welcoming little useum with well informed friendly energetic staff, more than willing to answer questions and show you around. The thatch roof could do with replacing, but aside from that, a great museum.

An attrictive little museum in the heart of Glencoe Village. Many interesting exhibits and very knowledgable staff. Well worth stopping by if you are in the area.

We found this museum totally by accident and were happily delighted that we did. The volunteer staff member was extemely friendly and very well informed and happy to answer all our questions. it is fascinating and gave a real sense of the type of cottage at the time of the Glencoe massacre and contained a lot of artifacts. Not to be missed is the incredible thatched roof.
