We visited the geopark twice and enjoyed the visitor centre and walks at Knockan Crag. The information is well put together and the walks well marked and sensibly graded.

Far off the beaten track for mass-tourism, this (and the Lochaber Geopark) nevertheless deserve better publicity. Not only scientists but anyone who has ever wondered why the stunning Highland landscape looks the way it does, will find the answers in the several visitors' centres and...More

Disappointed that the 'Rock Stop' was closed when we visited the area. Surely an information centre should be open at this time of year. The area is interesting but how do people get information if the centre is closed. We were looking forward to finding...More
