Facilities information:

This lovely little museum is crammed full of local history and artefacts, housed in two beautiful old thatched cottages. It has dedicated itself to promoting the history of Glencoe and surrounding area and has a great selection of objects including textiles, costumes, taxidermy and china connected to the Jacobite uprisings many years ago. Visiting the museum is like traveling back in time. The museum is well worth a visit and should make an interesting stopping point for the kids during a holiday trip up to the Highlands. There is a public loo in the village car park and a village shop next door to the museum which is handy for snacks, drinks and ice-creams!
