Overview

Glencoe Visitor Centre & Ranger Service. The National Trust for Scotland has cared for Glencoe & Dalness since 1935. We work to maintain footpaths, look after the fragile biodiversity and keep the landscape as precious and wild as it was when it first came into our care. While you're here, you can visit our exhibition 'Living on the Edge' and enjoy our cafe, shop and woodland walks. We also run a wide range of Ranger-led activities, including Guided Walks, Land Rover Safaris and Children's events.

The National Trust exhibition centre was well presented, some geological insights, mountain climbing memorabilia, historical screens, a great video of the famous massacre and some wildlife information. Some great views and gentle walks. The shop is expensive, as was the café, but clean toilets. Well...More

I thought the exhibition was a bit dated and not really worth the entrance fee. Staff although friendly were adamant on flogging joining the National Trust. I don't really agree with the National Trust's methods so did not join. Café was adequate although a bit...More

We were travelling from Edinburgh to Inverness via Fort William. This place is a great stopping off point to stretch your legs, get a coffee and visit the National Trust Scotland shop.

We were really disappointed with the centre and it certainly wasn’t worth the money. Maybe we expected too much but it wasn’t a great advert for the National Trust.

An attractive visitor centre, the interactive displays flow nicely and the kids’ activities are varied and interesting. Lots of parking and picnic benches, and one of the few NTS properties open during the February long weekend!
