A replica turf and creel house has opened in Glencoe offering visitors a glimpse of how people lived around the time of the 1692 massacre.

Skilled craftspeople began building the turf, wattle and thatch structure using traditional materials, tools and techniques in 2021.

It has the same footprint as one of the late 17th century dwellings excavated by the conservation charity’s archaeologists and volunteers at the former township of Achtriachtan, near the famous ‘Three Sisters’ of Glencoe.
