    Worthwile a visit!
    We had a stopover at the carpark to stretch our legs and ended up walking a beautiful trail. At the carpark is living a deer, which you should not feed. But as soon as you take out something to eat for yourself he/she comes over to get some as well. Which of course we did not do. Nevertheless, this gave us a great opportunity to take some photos :)

    Great visator centre & trails. Stunning views.
    Visited the visitor centre as well as doing the Buzzard & Woodland walks. Interesting exhibitors at centre with helpful member of staff able to offer advise & answer questions. Walks themselves were shorter with reasonable paths although steep, uneven and muddy in places so recommend good shoes! Views were stunning and guided points of the trail very interesting. Worth a visit, especially if you don't want to do the full mountain trail.

    The Buzzard Trail has Beautiful Views
    The visitor center has a large car park that is easily accessed. There was no one manning the center, but there are quite a number of interpretive boards, one of which lists several trails, along with expected duration, that all begin at the visitor center. We soon learned that there were markers in various places with a symbol associated for a particular trail. We chose the Buzzard trail, which was a short, circular loop that climbed partway up the mountain, and then back down again. The views along the way were beautiful. There are quite a number of placed stone steps to climb or descend in both directions. But, it really was not too taxing. I had walking sticks to use if needed just to secure my footing, but my husband needed none.

Beautiful woodland trail. Easy walking and lots of bird life. It was abit raining so quite quiet around the woods. Definitely will go back and do the mountain trail

The woodland trail was amazing and was perfect for our skill level. Definitely recommended for low to medium abilities.

Large free car park, nice little visitor centre with a lot of information. There are toilets but no bins. Great little bird hide where you can watch a lot of birds. Option to do some walks.

I stopped here while on my NC500 trip. I took about an hour out to do the Woodland walk. It was quite muddy at times, but still pleasant. Some good views at the top too. There was also the option of a more ambitious mountain trail. Either way, both were well marked. Good views from the car park too.

A wonderful place to go for a walk - they’ve got a few way marked trails ranging from easy to more strenuous routes. We did the mountain trail and loved it, it’s steep in parts but should be manageable for anyone who’s been out on the high fells of the Lake District.

Large free car park with view over loch. Good place for a picnic. Enjoyable walk described in the leaflets available in the kiosk which takes about 30 minutes (also a much longer walk right to the top if you have time and inclination)

We found the loch side carpark first due to the way we approached the centre and parked up there, got a free map from the information charts and did the woodland walk which climbs up the lower slopes of Ben Eighe but is a very manageable 1.5mile walk with lots of marked points corresponding to information in the booklet. The path is narrow and climbs up but was very manageable for our younger kids. Afterwards we drove on to the visitor centre to use toilets and looked at some of the videos there. The centre has a very short walk around grounds and a longer buzzard walk that we didn’t do. There’s no refreshments there but the garage a bit further down road had a cafe with nice sitting out area that was serving food and drink, we grabbed a takeout coffee here. Would definitely recommend if you want a walk with a view that only takes a short while to do.
