Documentary telling the story of the Glencoe massacre. In the early hours of 13th February 1692, 38 men, women and children of the clan MacDonald were slaughtered in their homes. Despite popular belief, this was not a typical clash between two highland clans but a planned attempt at eliminating a community by government soldiers.

The Glencoe massacre is one of the most famous and emotive legends in Scottish history, yet one of the most over-simplified and misunderstood.

Parts were filmed at Hunterston Castle. The original entrance, great hall, bedroom and attic are shown. And some interviews done at Hunterston House.
