The Massacre of Glencoe occurred in Glen Coe, Scotland, in the early morning of 13 February 1692, during the era of the Glorious Revolution and the Jacobites. In Scottish Gaelic, the event is named 'Mort Ghlinne Comhann' (murder of Glen Coe).
The massacre began simultaneously in three settlements along the glen Invercoe, Inverrigan, and Achnacon although the killing took place all over the glen as fleeing MacDonalds were pursued. Thirty-eight MacDonalds from the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were killed by the guests who had accepted their hospitality, on the grounds that the MacDonalds had not been prompt in pledging allegiance to the new monarchs, William and Mary. Another forty women and children died of exposure after their homes were burned. Artwork originally published in the July 31st 1965 edition of Treasure Magazine.
