The Massacre of Glencoe by John Buchan is a refreshingly simple, easy to read but very informative narration of that fateful day in the Glen and the events that led up to it and those that followed. I have read many books on the Macdonalds and specifically of the massacre in Glencoe. The Granddaddy being "Glencoe" by John Prebble. Prebble's book is full of background and swimming in facts that should satiate any avid scottish historian or those with an interest in Glencoe.

Terrific history
Owomed
For many Glencoe is a famous and often told tale of deceit and treachery. The Massacre of Glencoe by John Buchan is a refreshingly simple, easy to read but very informative narration of that fateful day in the Glen and the events that led up to it and those that followed. I have read many books on the Macdonalds and specifically of the massacre in Glencoe. The Granddaddy being "Glencoe" by John Prebble. Prebble's book is full of background and swimming in facts that should satiate any avid scottish historian or those with an interest in Glencoe. But John Buchan's book was a wonderful read in its telling. It was easy to read and read like a story, although sadly it happened. The characters were real and alive. I appreciated his words and although I knew how it would end I was sucked in with every page and could not put it down. This book is a wonderful history of the trials of the MacIans of Glencoe. I highly recommend this book for the novice or the seasoned veteran of Scottish history.
