Visitor Centre

Awarded 3 * Visitor Attraction by Visit Scotland

In spring 2015 our lovely visitor centre was opened in the Nethy Bridge Community Centre. Come along for a great introduction to the area, activities for children, maps and much more.


On certain days, you can meet up with the Ranger at the visitor centre to find out about guided walks and other activities and get answers to any questions you have about Abernethy.

Path Network

There is an extensive network of paths around the village set up and maintained by Explore Abernethy, to help you to do what it’s name says. Many of the routes are all ability, and are an easy way to get to know the fantastic forest nearby.


There’s plenty happening at all times of year. Find out what’s on in Nethy Bridge and the surrounding area.
