As part of the Peatland Partnership’s Flows to the Future project our visitor centre at Forsinard is being refurbished in April and May 2017.

A new peatland exhibition will explain how the blanket bog of the Flow Country formed, why it is so important and how the RSPB is restoring large areas of peatland that have been damaged through inappropriate forestry and agricultural practices.

There will also be a new short film, an interactive peatland simulation and peatland management ‘game’.

Unfortunately during April and May 2017 we will occasionally have to close the centre or restrict visitor access to allow contractors to work on the refurbishment. We apologies for any disruption or disappointment this may cause, but hope you will understand and come to visit the newly refurbished centre once it is completed in mid-May.

The Flows Lookout Tower and Dubh-lochain trail are unaffected by the refurbishment works and are open to visitors at all times!
