Glencoe, Scotland, ranks among the most famous historic sites in Scotland, notable because of the infamous massacre, in 1692, of the MacDonalds of Glencoe, the smallest of the Clan Donald sects. Although worse atrocities involving greater slaughter have occurred during Scotland's turbulent past, the Massacre of Glencoe has earned a unique place in the lore of the Highlands because of its treacherous and brutal manner of execution. Tour Glencoe. Tour Scotland.
