The exhibition was free to enter as we are members of the National Trust, but worth paying as it was very informative and so interesting hands on displays. If you have time do the walks way marked around the grounds, we saw a pole cat whilst walking on the path furthest away from the buildings. Plenty of seating and beachs... More

We went to the visitor center to find some information about hikes in Glencoe. We were able to buy a good Ordnance Survey map but did not find any guidebooks or similar on hiking routes. Staff both at the counter and in the shop seemed a bit at a loss about what we wanted and not to know much about... More

If you want shops, restaurants and more shops - go to a city. This place is wild countryside, awesome mountains and backdrops, winding roads and wild goats and deer keeping you alert!. We went to the visitor centre for a coffee. But really this is a dark and brooding glen and stunning scenery

Average cafe and probably a bit expensive for the quality of the offerings. Shop was very good though with good stock and lovely staff. Didn't realise you needed to pay for parking (really???) until we went back to the car and luckily, it wasn't a problem.

We walked both the Hidden Valley Walk [only up to the valley itself and back] and the Devil's Staircase [only up to the first pass and back]. The Hidden Valley walk was really beautiful and if you have time for only one I would hike the Hidden Valley. The visitor center had an information point and the women that helped... More

The visitor center is fantastic! It has a little cafe with many options, a wonderful gift shop, a section to educate you on the landscape around you was formed, and the best part; trails to meander about right outside the doors! This is a great little spot to stop and then delve further into this gorgeous portion of Scotland!

We were pleased to find the visitor centre in Glen Coe but somewhat disappointed at the exhibitions. The video relating to the massacre was amateurish and the displays limited. The entrance fee of £5.00 per person is expensive for what is on offer. The shop was also expensive.

A very worthwhile stop on any trip up into the highlands. The visitor centre caters well for anyone interested in the history, be it human or natural, of Glencoe. The cafe / tearoom serves a decent selection and a good coffee. One big tip - If you are coming to Scotland from any other country that has a "National Trust"... More

Glencoe is majestic, awe inspiring and atmospheric. It is impossible not to be impressed by it. The sense of history is palpable. Even on the sunniest day there is a chill to the air. The National Trust visitor centre is a poor offering. We are Trust members and called into the cafe. The sandwiches looked tired, the scone was rubbery,... More

Visited this visitors centre on 22/04/17, brilliant place for parking cars and coaches and is also very clean. Clearly sign posted and when your in there, it is also sign posted where the shop, cafe and everything else is, it is very clean inside and the staff seem very helpful. The major selling point is the wonderful view you get... More
