Lots of great displays, telling the folk history of this charming village. Be prepared to stoop over to visit the out buildings. You can walk to the Monument from here.

The folk museum is a small local museum. Well worth a visit for an hour and the small donation to help with upkeep.

This is £3 well spent. Much to see in this compact space, including a very nicely constructed presentation of the interior of a croft at the time of the massacre.

A quite small but very interesting museum on the main street of Glencoe Village. It is worth seeing and spending a little time learning some history.

Small but interesting local museum with a mixture of interesting exhibits. Good collection of photographs of the early, now defunct, railway in the area. Don’t miss the exhibits in the outhouses.
