Bennachie Visitor Centre
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.
The Bennachie Visitor Centre is managed and maintained by the Bennachie Centre Trust, a voluntary organisation and registered charity. The Centre, which is open daily April-October, provides a focus for visitors to discover Bennachie and increase their understanding and enjoyment of the social, cultural and natural history of the area. We provide exhibition space, educational materials, multi-media interpretation, and act as a focus for public events and activities as well as community initiatives. Entry is fully accessible, free, as are most events and activities. Our facilities include toilets (open all year round), a community room, refreshments and a gift shop.
Arts and craft skills, from making clothes and pots to decorating our homes, are ancient traditions. Meet the modern-day makers as we showcase the work of six local artists as part of the NEOS (North East Open Studios) festival.
