Ample Parking & Disabled Access
The Centre has plenty of parking nearby and is accessible for wheelchair users by a ramp. There are disabled-accessible toilet facilities provided at the Community Centre.
Our newly refurbished Visitor Centre was opened in 2015 in part of the Nethy Bridge Commnity Centre. It has been awarded 3* Visitor Attraction status by Visit Scotland.
The refurbishment of the Centre was led by Explore Abernethy and funded by Cairngorms National Park Authority and Scottish Natural Heritage with support from RSPB.
The centre provides:
- Visitor Information and orientation (for both the local and wider area) including information on the Explore Abernethy path network, Dell Woods National Nature Reserve and Cairngorms National Park
- Exhibits / displays
- Hands on children’s activities
- Historical information and artefacts
- Walks packs and trail maps for sale.
- Audiovisual display
