The massacre began simultaneously in three settlements along the glen although the killing took place all over the glen. 38 MacDonalds from the Clan MacDonald were killed by the guests who had accepted their hospitality, on the grounds that they had not been prompt in pledging allegiance to the new monarchs, William and Mary.
