New Visitor Centre at Falls of Shin
In May 2013, a fire swept through the Falls of Shin visitor centre completely destroying it. This was a major tragedy for the area as it was a significant attraction for tourists and provided a source of employment for the local community.
Four years after this devastating event, the new Falls of Shin Visitor Centre is now reopened. There is a superb restaurant serving delicious meals, snacks refreshments and cakes, as well as a gift shop that has an excellent range of quality products from local suppliers. There are also woodland walks, a play-park and viewing areas for the falls and, of course, the leaping Salmon as they head upstream to their spawning grounds.
The falls are an easy day trip from Inverness and can be combined with visits to several distilleries (The Dalmore, Glenmorangie and Balblair), potteries (Tain and ANTA) and artisan glass makers Glasstorm
