Glencoe Folk Museum Main Street Glencoe Village Glencoe PH49 4HS | Contact Catriona

The Glencoe Folk  Museum was co-founded by Miss Barbara Fairweather MBE and Mrs Rae Grant in the 1960s, and for both ladies it was a life’s work. The collections quickly outgrew the original museum building, and in 1971 the museum was gifted its current home by the late Hugh Grant. The new museum opened its doors in 1972, and the unique and eclectic collection of objects has continued to grow.

The main building is what is known as a ‘cruck’ cottage. This term is used when the bearing beams of the roof come down the inside walls instead of resting on the side walls.
