Falls of Shin Visitor Centre
Achany Glen, Lairg
A day out at the Falls of Shin Visitor Centre is a truly wonderful experience for all the family.
Open all year round, and only an hour's drive north from Inverness, amongst spectacular Highland Scenery, it's worth the journey.
Dramatic waterfalls and the famous, natural Atlantic Salmon Leap can take your breath away. See Mr Al Fayed for yourself as he graces the entrance courtesy of a genuine Madam Tussaud's waxwork.
The River Shin is one of Scotland’s great salmon rivers, with the fresh, clear water - coloured slightly brown due to the natural peaty soil of the landscape - creating perfect conditions for the Atlantic Salmon, and other fish that thrive in a constant flow of fresh water.
This most natural feature enthrals visitors lucky enough to witness the many Atlantic Salmon as they battle upstream at the Falls to return to their place of birth in Loch Shin and spawn the next generation.
All year: June - September from 9.00am; October - May from 9.30am
