Visitor Centre

The Falls of Shin Visitor Centre is closed due to a fire which broke out on the 20th May 2013

Following the fire and subsequent loss of the facilities at Falls of Shin, Balnagown Estates are willing to help support a fresh new community initiative at the location.


We were delighted to see so many people attend the recent public consultation meeting to discuss the future of the site, and as a result of this interest we have extended the period allowed for public comment to 14th April 2014. Further comments can be sent to the email address below.


For the coming Summer we have along with Highland Council made provision for toilets and the upkeep of the site so visitors can continue to visit the salmon leap viewpoint and enjoy the beautiful woodland walks at Achany which is adjacent to the car park. More information is available on the Forestry Commission website.


Visitors to the area may also enjoy the excellent facilities both in Lairg and Bonar Bridge.
