Travel back in time and behind the scenes to explore our reconstruction of a 300 year old Turf House, once home to Clan MacDonald of Glencoe

About this event

Among the mountains of Glencoe, the National Trust for Scotland is bringing the 17th century to life...

Inspired by archaeological excavations within the glen, our team of craftspeople have reconstructed a traditional, 17th century Highland home.

Join us for a guided tour of the building to learn about the history of the lost township of Achtriachtan and how past residents of Glencoe used natural, local materials to build their homes.

You may already know the story of how the MacDonalds were massacred in Scotland's most infamous glen... Now, come and see how they lived!
