The Ghosts of Glencoe embodies most of the strengths that we associate with writing for children of a more confident day—pace, sustained excitement, clearly defined characters and a happy ending which is in no way marred by the moral questions raised by the subject, even though that subject may be the treachery and the gratuitous and bestial violence of the massacre of Glencoe.

Gordon Parsons, "Eleven to Fifteen: 'The Ghosts of Glencoe'," in The School Librarian, Vol. 25, No. 4, December, 1977, p. 353.
