Full of information and guidance. A good place to start if unsure of what to do or where to go. Plenty of walks nearby with amazing scenery. Close to the Three Lochs Forest Dtive.

Not only the scenery, landscapes walks and viewpoint are fantastic. The lodge cafe is a great place to regroup dry and warm up after the walk. The staff is very friendly and the food is awesome and not expensive at all! I highly recommend it.
