Lochaber Geopark Visitor Centre

Visit our new Visitor Centre on High Street, Fort William

Our Visitor Centre is on High Street, Fort William, crammed with great rock and mineral specimens and fantastic information about the landsdcape and geology in Lochaber.

The boards that you can see around Lochaber are also displayed in the Centre to give you a flavour for the landscape formations you can expect to see on your travels.  You can pick up copies of our Geotrails and Rock Routes leaflets to help plan your trips and guide you through the geological features.

We keep a good stock of our own publications and quality books, maps and guides from BGS, FSC, OS, Cicerone and others. Also for sale you will find our own merchandise, Lochaber Geopark’s Ben Nevis Chocolates, made by the renowned Oban Chocolate Company, and our 2016 Calendars, Landscape with geological interpretation, and Wildlife.  Our products can also be found in our online shop here.  We sell local high quality crafts and prints from Lochaber crafters in our Visitor Centre.

Our visitor centre is staffed by lovely, knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers.  Our opening hours are a bit varied, so here’s a rough guide to our winter hours:

Monday 10-4, Tuesday 10-2, Wednesday 10.30-5, Closed Thursday, Friday 10-4, Saturday 10-2 and Sunday 10-4.
