About the tour

A walk around Glencoe Lochan, close to the scene of the infamous Glencoe Massacre of 1692. Surrounded by towering mountains and mysterious woodland, this tour will give you an in depth description of the politics and power play which led to this grizzly episode, as well as a step by step account of what happened on that cold February morning. And no story of Scottish history would be complete without a few myths and legends thrown in for good measure. So why not join me as we step back in time and unveil the true story of the Glencoe Massacre…

Meet Craig


Craig lives in Ballachulish, on the west coast of Scotland. He can be found exploring the mountains and glens, hill walking or mountain biking. He loves Scotland’s wild places, its rugged coastlines and soaring peaks. But his real passion lies in the long, intricate and often bloody history for which Scotland is famous and he loves nothing more than sharing this passion with all who join him on his travels. Loaded with stories – both humorous and fascinating – a tour with Craig is both rewarding and fun.

I never thought of visiting Scotland but after this tour with Craig it’s definitely on my bucket list. Glencoe was so lush and beautiful. The scenery was jaw dropping. It was so cool listening to the history of the area. Craig is amazing to go on a tour with. Thank you Craig. And good luck with your studies in the fall.

Craig is truly a history buff! It comes naturally for him to recount many details in history. He really knows how to tell the story so that you can picture the events that took place so long ago! It's pretty much ingrained in him.

We had trouble with the video till we left tour and reentered. The hike and monuments were interesting...story was a little hard to keep track of.
