The Ferry Croft Countryside Centre looked very new when we first approached it. My thoughts were right the old centre built in 1994 had been given a complete revamp and the results were splendid. We really enjoyed the visual and hands on activities which show the history of Lairg from its beginnings up to the present day. They also had very interesting displays on the long gone native pine forests and the animals who lived in this forest. The centre offers tourist information, accommodation booking, a well stocked gift shop and a cafe serving snacks and hot and cold drinks. Outside there is a delightful play area for children and the cute wooden animals. If its raining as it was when we visited, this is a fun and educational place to stop and while a way some time until the sun returns. Two walks start from here too, one goes through Ferry Wood, while the second takes you up Ord Hill. Both walks are described in the visitors' centre.
