Full movie description "The Massacre of Glencoe":In 1689, after acquiring the English, Scottish and Irish crowns, King William the 3rd, a Protestant Dutchman, is faced with a strong opposition from the Scottish clans. The clans, united during the Jacobite uprising of 1689, are debating whether to accept William as their new king or honor their oath previously given to the ousted Catholic King James the 2nd who lived in French exile. Some clan chiefs argue they should remain loyal to ousted King James while others argue they should recognize the new English sovereign. In arguing the case for accepting the new monarch, some of the clan chiefs acknowledge the reality of having lost the military initiative during the latest Jacobite rebellion and being too weak to oppose the numerous English armies of King William. Moreover, they understand that ousted King James is far-away, in French exile, and penniless, most likely unable to raise an army, while King William is already firmly entrenched on the English throne.

Reviews of the The Massacre of GlencoeThis is an excellent treatment of a notorious incident in Scottish history. We know exactly what's going to happen - it's in the title. But this looming sense of dread balances out any couthiness in the film.
It also avoids being a complete melodrama, by showing the perpetrators as human beings, the complexities and accidents that led to the situation etc. The baddies are conflicted, to say the least. (Cynics would say that's because it's directed by a Campbell!) This makes it a much more rounded film.
Much of the film is on location, with outdoor scenes in Glencoe itself.
The film is actually very short... under an hour. It makes an excellent companion piece to Peter Watkin's "mockumentary" Culloden. And no, it doesn't blame the English for everything either...
