Glencoe & North Lorn Folk Museum

Visitor Attractions

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

Housed within two 18th Century, traditionally thatched croft cottages, the museum tells the rich and exciting history of the local area: from the carving of the Ballachulish Goddess in 600BC to the opening of the Ballachulish Bridge in 1975, from Jacobite uprisings to World Wars. Take a peek into a MacDonald cottage on the night of the infamous Massacre of Glencoe, dress up as a Jacobite soldier and practice your ‘Highland Charge’, or simply let our objects transport you to the past.

The museum has a fascinating collection of objects including Jacobite relics, costume, paintings, agricultural implements, medical equipment, classic toys, archaeology, photographs, First and Second World War memorabilia and domestic items from around the Glencoe area.

Each object tells its own compelling story. How did Robert Campbell lose his boot? Who was the Ballachulish Goddess? Why were swords hidden in thatched roofs after the Battle of Culloden? And what is a ‘plunket roller’?
