From Tyndrum we headed to Glencoe. We stopped for a photo opp at the Folk Museum and of course couldn't resist a tour. The folk museum is housed in an original highland Blackhouse.
The museum tells the sad tale of one of the darkest times in Glencoe history, the Massacre of Glencoe.
In the early morning hours of February 13th. the Macdonalds were slaughtered in their sleep after having hosted their traitors for close to a fortnight. The Massacre began simultaneously in three settlements across the Glen - Invercoe, Inveriggan and Achnacon.
Men were dragged out of their beds and murdered, houses were set alight and women, children and the elderly were sent out into the cold dark night. 38 Macdonalds died immediately while many more died later of exposure. Fortunately for those of us who now proudly claim our McDonald heritage, a few managed to escape into the hills
