:-( Despite the TripAdvisor 2017 Certificate of Excellence, visitScotland has shuttered this place. Nice pile of maps locked behind glass doors. Not so useful for day hikes.

Visited twice. Staff were pleasant and information was readily available. Not very well-situated for visitors, perhaps.

Friendly and informative staff, gave us just the information we needed for our visit. A good location on the front, and even if you do have to go to the paying carpark, it is super cheap.

An essential visit to start your visit to this vast area. The center is full of brochures, maps and information etc. The office staff very helpful and interesting to talk to. Parking outside on main road is often possible and free.
