The visitor centre is a good place to begin a visit as there's a wealth of information there. We enjoyed walking the easy trails directly from the visitor centre; it was a wild, windy day so that was sufficient. Lovely views all around.

Touring around the "North Coast 500", we stopped to have a look at the Visitor Centre....we were rewarded with informative displays on the history of the reserve and some excellent walks available to suit all comers. The attendant was a mine of local information and directed us along to the reserve trails further up Loch Maree, which were excellent. As... More

The visitor centre is a great facility - well thought out and full of interesting info about the area and wildlife - though a camera setup on a feeding station you could easily see out the window seemed overkill. Having said that there was no welcome from the staff member on duty who hardly raised his head from his laptop... More

Walked with our two dogs up to the crash sight at the Fairy lochs. Nice circular route although very wet underfoot due to the weather. Too windy to go any higher!

The exhibition in the visitor centre is excellent - superb photography, interesting information, videos, and CCTV trained on the bird feeders outside. [The man on duty could have been more welcoming. He ignored everyone who came in which I thought was quite ignorant as he sits by the door. He clearly had more important things to do than greet visitors!]... More

The visitor centre is not the same stopping place as the start of the walk. The 2nd stop was where we started the Woodland Trail (1.5km & steep/rocky in places). Stunning views over Loch Maree with plenty benches to stop & take it in (if the midges let you). Visiting at the end of summer was a real treat with... More

Interesting visitor centre with great exhibitions and models. We enjoyed the video of the eagle's nest and the bird feeders outside.

Beautiful. We did a couple of the low level walks. Accessible paths, dog poop scoops provided. Saw an eagle! Gorgeous views and scenery. Would recommend.

This is a lovely place to visit in the midst of stunning scenery including ancient forests. We didn't spot any pine martens, wildcats, buzzards or golden eagles (we were too busy swatting the midges) but we enjoyed looking for them and marvelling at the clean fresh air and sense of stillness. We'd thoroughly recommend the nearby Visitor Centre, which has... More
