    The entrance fee to Glenco visitor's centre is a bit steep at £5.00 there are two audio visual shows one on the Massacre & the other on mountaineering a few audios telling folk lore stories & the rest pictorial & a lot of reading. You then go to the observation area to see the mountains = mountains are big so you can see them without paying!

    Unique Suggestions: Become a member of the National Trust for Scotland for an annual fee & visit all of their castles & parks for free.

    Fun Alternatives: If you need to know the history of the glen use the internet or buy a book

    There are no entrance fees displayed and we thought our concessionary entrance fee of £12.00 each was excessive to say the least.
    The suggestion from the marketing material is that this is a seal sanctuary - there are two seals in a tiny pool. The otter enclosure was devoid of life - the two waterfalls were dry and it all pointed to an absence of otters. The aquaria were interesting and there was a good variety of marine life but the whole experience took us just under an hour - not much for the entrance fee.
    I cannot add any photos as there was nothing worth taking a photo of.

    Unique Suggestions: The cafe was good !!
