  • Beautiful building but quite outdated museum! I really wish you all the best for the future. Glencoe is such a beautiful place to visit and I can't wait to see this being a reflection!
  • Glencoe is a beautiful stopping point in your drive through the Highlands. This is my second time in Glencoe but my first stop at the Following Museum. It's worth the stop and the few pounds entry fee. They do a great job giving you a feeling of life in Glencoe with an emphasis on the period around World War I.
