Lovely building that sits easily within the landscape setting. Inspired by the basalt columns of the Giants Causeway and sitting below an earthen roof this sustainable building also has innovative heating and water recycling incorporated into the design. Oh ... and there's a good gift...More

The visitors centre is lovely and clean and full of wonderful information, but I would not have paid to enter the centre as it is far too expensive.....i entered with a national trust card so it was free to enter.
