Planning your visit

Glencoe Visitor Centre improvement works

Between November 2018 and March 2019 a major project will transform our Glencoe Visitor Centre. While improvement work is underway, the current exhibition, café and shop will be closed. Our car park and toilets will remain open and we will continue to welcome visitors at a combined café, shop and information point.

Relax in the self-service café – there is also an outdoor seating area so you can enjoy the views while you eat.

Visit the shop with its range of pocket-money toys and games, Scottish produce and wildflower seeds.

Explore the visitor centre to learn about the glen, its wildlife and the families who lived here.

Speak to our rangers at the Outlook Station at the visitor centre about safety, weather, wildlife sightings and walk recommendations.

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.

Car parking is available adjacent to the visitor centre and is free for members.

Dogs are welcome in the glen but must be under control, either on a lead or returning immediately to the owner’s side on command. Assistance dogs are welcome inside Glencoe Visitor Centre.

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

If you would like to speak to us we can be contacted by email: glencoe@nts.org.uk or telephone 01855 811307.
