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.

My notes said it was free, but it wasn’t. Think we paid $4.50 concession fee. There was also a sign in the parking lot to pay $3 and display but we didn’t have the right amount, and neither did this other tourist so we skipped...More

I am a NTS member. Last week I visited Poolewe Gardens, another NTS site and was very moved by its excellence in every way. However Glencoe is not so good. The shop was OK, the exhibition not very interesting and the cafe was poor -...More

Having recently joined NTS, we made use of the membership to go to the visitor centre. On entering the car park you are met with the ubiquitous Pay and Display machine which at £3 seemed excessive, so thankfully we did not need it. The same...More

We declined to go in the exhibition because it appeared to be very expensive. We did have a very good tea and coffee in the cafe and we did take a walk along one of the guided walk ways - not the long one but...More

I wouldn't pay to visit here, as the price isn't worth it for non-members. It's got information on the Glencoe Massacre as well as geological and climbing information, but that's it. There's a lovely view of the valley out the back, but you can see...More

Visited the shop, lovely gifts and products available. Young lady on till wasn't very friendly, verging on rude. Felt that £3 to use car park then £6.50 per adult to enter the exhibition was excessively expensive so we just visited the gift shop then left.
