When the last remaining lands of Lord Strathcona’s Glencoe Estate came up for sale in 2002, a local community bid was unsuccessful and it looked as though the historic lands would be lost from the community, however local resident Alistair MacDonald, a descendant of the MacDonalds of Glencoe, managed to secure loans to raise the £105,000 asking price and The Glencoe Heritage Trust was formed. As Alistair points out, “these lands are where our ancestors lived and died, it is where we are and who we are”.
The acquisition of the land was a rare opportunity for the local community to ensure the preservation of this unique landscape, to raise awareness of the vital historical importance of the land both locally and worldwide and continue to educate through the preservation of manuscripts, photographs, gatherings and other tangible links.
