Urquhart Castle Visitor Centre

LDN Architects LLP

Urquhart Castle, dating from the 13th century is Scotland’s most visited Highland castle. With the development of the new Visitor Centre, LDN Architects and Historic Scotland have provided high quality facilities that enhance people’s enjoyment and understanding of Urquhart Castle and encourage visitors to spend more time in the Drumnadrochit area. The Centre, designed to minimise both its own impact and that of carparking on the setting of the castle, includes exhibition areas, a community/education room, a shop, tea room and a lecture theatre, the screen of which slides back to reveal a dramatic view of the castle.
