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.
Aberdeenshire Council have a team of 6 rangers based throughout Aberdeenshire, and a Warden plus seasonal staff at the Bennachie Visitor Centre, to help visitors and residents explore and enjoy our rich natural and cultural heritage. In common with other Ranger Services in Scotland, we have 3 main aims: To provide a warm welcome and provide support to help people enjoy the outdoors To increase awareness, understanding, care and responsible use of the natural and cultural heritage To support the sustainable management and use of the outdoors to meet a range of social, economic and environmental objectives.Virtually explore Bennachie!
