Why should I visit the Ardnamurchan Natural History Visitor Centre?

The Natural History Visitor Centre is the winner of three prestige awards and serves the purpose of introducing all visitors to the jaw-dropping variety of flora and fauna species in the area in this beautiful part of Scotland! The centre has used its passion and love for the natural world to help create memorable experiences for young and old! The aim of the centre is to help visitors connect closer with nature and to encourage them to explore it themselves!

The staff at the centre will welcome all visitors warmly and start off by introducing them to all of the natural wildlife of the area in the Living Building. The Living Building has no captive animals, however a handful of species have decided to make it their home, including bats, field voles, swallows and even pine martens! The atmosphere of the Living Building is similar to that of woodland and serves as a means to walk through nature without having to venture outside into the cold wet conditions!

Once exploring everything to offer in the Living Building, visitors can head on over to the Lochview Tearoom and enjoy some homemade refreshments and treats to refuel them after a day of discovery! Opening its doors at 8.30 am, the cafe serves a range of light lunches and afternoon teas, perfect for enjoying after a busy day at the centre!

  • The centre is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm
  • Gift shop and tea room are found at the centre as well as toilets and disabled toilets
  • Daily films shown at the centre’s mini cinema from 11 am to 3 pm
