Glencoe NTS Visitor Centre

This is a beautiful modern building, by Gaia Architects, referencing the old croft and black houses. There is a viewpoint and some interpretation facing onto the site of the Glencoe masacre  There is also an interpretation centre run by the National Trust for Scotland explaining the historical, geological and natural history of the glen and surrounding mountains. It’s a small and well done visitor centre, if rather expensive to get into.

The cafe is spartan and we usualy go to the nearby Crafts and Things or Glencoe cafe if we want coffee and cake or something more substantial.

It is certainly worth a visit as the main place to view the site of the Glencoe massacre and to learn a little of its history and significance. But as part of a day trip doing other things.
