When the glaciers melted after the last Ice Age in the UK , the Highland landscape was formed, creating Glens and Lochs. Erosion by debris, boulders and gravel led to the formation of the River Shin and the Falls of Shin which are a natural feature of the River, and are next to the visitor centre. 

Here you can watch from the viewing platform Atlantic Salmon

Battle to return to their place of birth to spawn the next salmon generation.

The visitor centre shop has a range of superb quality local crafts, and exclusive luxury gifts
