Very good, historical information and visitor centre - for all ages.

Only one small 'complaint' - not that it's really a complaint, is that it's difficult to see some of the 'attractions' as the trees have grown to obscure them. There were people... read more

Only one small 'complaint' - not that it's really a complaint, is that it's difficult to see some of the 'attractions' as the trees have grown to obscure them. There were people tending to them as we visited, so the trees are possibly trimmed down a bit more by now. This is a great educational place to visit to let... More

Very informative and user friendly particular for youngsters interested in this particular era of the Jacobite uprising, loved the comment that most of the armies stood back to see who was winning before joining sides. Of such randomness is fate decided.

It may be steep but make the effort to get to Soldier's Leap - you won't be disappointed! The river has the best stone skimming you could wish for - we had to drag our son away in the end! It was so peaceful - just the magical sound of the river gurgling over the rocks. The information centre was... More

We visited the National Trust Scotland site nr Killiecrankie which has very good parking along with an excellent information centre. The staff at this site are very helpful and you can see a wide variety of birds and Red Squirrels feeding next to the information centre. The walk down to the Soldiers Lead is steep and but has good steps.

Good, well sited, information centre. Not very busy when we visited but I think guides tend to take their bus loads of tourists direct to the Soldier's Leap and miss out going into the Centre. Bags of level parking at the information centre but it is Pay & Display unless you;re a member of the National Trust for Scotland or... More

We visited the Killiecrankie visitor centre and then walked on to the Soldiers Leap. Nice but steep walk to the Leap area. Visitor centre was excellent and the staff member was very informative. You can buy bird food at 50p a bag for their wildlife garden and you can watch the webcam in the centre and spot the odd red... More

Only really stopped off to get a coffee & stretch our legs. The £2 car parking charge is a tad steep. Friendly & helpful staff inside & outside the centre. Coffee was very nice. Looks like there are quite a few child friendly actives for children.

At the centre you can enjoy watching the woodpeckers and other birds feed. The walk is pleasant easy and interesting leading to the Linn of Tummell and on to a water fall. It was a very enjoyable morning.
