Planning your visit

We’ve now reopened our visitor centre after a major revamp with a new café, shop, exhibition, film screening area and information hub.

There’s a £4 per vehicle admission price to the visitor centre and car park, which directly supports our work in the glen (National Trust for Scotland members can visit for free). Car parking is available adjacent to the visitor centre.

Our popular Land Rover safaris allow visitors of all abilities, including wheelchair users, to get a completely different view of the glen and its wildlife.

Dogs are welcome in the glen but must be kept under control to avoid disturbing wildlife, either on a lead or returning immediately to the owner’s side on command. Assistance dogs are welcome inside our visitor centre.

For more information about planning your visit please see our frequently asked questions.
