Planning your visit

Parking is available for cars and coaches. The car park is located about 40 metres from the visitor centre and parking is free for members. The coach park is about 10 metres away.

The number of camper vans will be limited at busy times due to space restrictions in the main area of the car park.

Our café offers hot drinks along with soup, sandwiches and cakes. There is also a catering van that sells tea and coffee.

Browse through our well-stocked gift shop.

Dogs are welcome in the grounds but please keep them on a lead. Only assistance dogs are permitted in the visitor centre.

If you plan to see the Jacobite steam train, we recommend allowing plenty of time to get parked to save disappointment – the car park is closed when full, for safety reasons.

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: or telephone 01397 722250.
