The visitor center has a great playground, interesting exhibits on the local area, a small shop and a very reasonably priced cafe (drinks and small snacks). Bathrooms are clean. It is also a starting point for several nice walls. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Nice centre full of history about lairg, interactive parts and things for children to do. Nice gift shop and seating area for a quiet read or chat. Small play area outside and walks along the loch to keep them busy

A great place for short walks with great views over the loch. There are 2 walks 1 is a short uphill walk with great views - not suitable for pushchairs and the other has great paths suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs - worth a visit

This really is worth a visit. The exhibition about the Lairg asteroid strike is fascinating. A good selection of books and other gifts in the shop. Friendly and helpful staff.

Great displays about local history. The Lairg asteroid exhibition was fascinating and supported by a TV documentary on a loop. Good shop with lots of local tourist information as well.
