NTS GlencoeA multi award winning Visitor Centre and Building, encompassing a shop - with lots of interesting local products, a café - with fabulous home baking, an information point - including weather forecasts for climbers & walkers and advice on routes, a viewing platform, and an education room which often features additional exhibitions.

The building is laid out in the form of a 'clachan' or Highland village. The architects wanted to bring the virtually untouched, naturally regenerating landscape right up close to the visitor as they move among the various parts of the Centre via external boardwalks. The architects have developed a system whereby all the elements of the building are biodegradable and removable either for maintenance or replacement and the nail-free construction can be disassembled and re-used without damage.
