The result of a design competition, the circular building of the Visitor Centre reflects the historic hill fort on the dominant peak of Mither Tap. The south facing high windows allow natural light and solar warmth into the building. The building uses natural materials to reflect the woodland setting and the drystane dyking heritage of the area.

Visit the Bennachie Visitor Centre and discover the story of Bennachie, its history, wildlife and legends through a variety of displays and self-led trails.
