"The Massacre of Glen Coe (2)" Scotland Favorite Tip by shivan
Scotland General: 181 reviews and 246 photos
Favorite thing: An army of about 120 men, belonging to the Clan Campbell, arrived to Glen Coe.
Hospitality is an ancient tradition in Scotland, and the MacDonalds offered it to the Campbells.
After having been there for 12 days, during the night of february 13th 1692, the soldiers killed everybody under the age of 70, including women and kids.
The village of Glencoe now hosts a monument telling the sad story and every year the MacDonald Clan members gather there for remembrance.
