If you love Glencoe and the history surrounding this village then you must visit the Folk Museum.

very helpful staff who will explain anything you ask and lots to look at, I wish it was a bit bigger as i could spend more time there. worth looking if you are in Glencoe and situated right in the village.

We had a great tour of the museum, with many anecdotes of the local history. A good collection of local artifacts and history of the Glencoe Massacre.

You could easily miss this lovely wee museum, but don't!

Its set in a stunning thatched cottage. Inside is a treasure trove of local and Scots history. It brought some fascinating times to life for us.

The volunteer was very knowledgeable and a lively story telling. She was also fabulous with our then 1 year old, letting her explore fully.

Highly recommended!
