Glencoe & North Lorn Folk Museum

Glencoe and North Lorn Folk MuseumWithin traditional, heather-thatched cottages, you will be amazed and entertained by the variety of objects that portray the history of this remarkable area. Topics to discover include history, agriculture, costume, medicine and toys. You can find out all about the infamous Massacre of Glencoe which happened in 1692 when the Government troops, after being given hospitality from the local clan, brutally murdered them in a pre-meditated act which shocked and outraged all of Scotland when the true story came out.

Glencoe & North Lorn Folk MuseumSee something of interest for any age in an early 18th Century restored thatched cottage, displaying a selection of artifacts including antique china, toys, domestic and medical utensils, costumes, Jacobite memorabilia and weapons, some found hidden locally after Culloden. Outhouses contain agricultural and dairy implements relating to a bygone age. The museum can be found on the main street in the picturesque village of Glencoe. Friendly helpers are always nearby to answer any questions you may have.
