Soldier boy Origins: Snows of Glencoe / Massacre of Glencoe (15) RE: Origins: Snows of Glencoe / Massacre of Glencoe 31 May 11

Not sure about where the notion of castles comes from.

Sorry but it sounds like an embroidered Disney fairy tale to me.

I have camped on the site of the Massacre in Glencoe and saw no castle. I believe the McDonalds were just simple crofters who took the 'guest' Campbells into their own simple abodes overnight to offer safe passage as they supposedly travelled through the highlands.

Of course I could be wrong and am willing to be corrected.
