Muirshiel Visitor Centre & Country Park gives easy access to ‘great walking in hen harrier countryside’ in what was once an impressive Victorian shooting estate.

There are trails in mixed woodland and tracks leading out on to the moor, where you can see the remains of the 1920s’ grouse railway (NS 303 674), built to transport shooting parties on to the moor, and an old barytes mine (NS 292 648). The country park, part of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park is surrounded by a Special Protection Area of international importance for its breeding population of hen harriers.

The Countryside Rangers provide an environmental education programme, offer advice about local walking routes and wildlife, Look on the events page to see what special events, walks and family friendly activities are coming up.

The Visitor Centre with refreshments and small gift shop is open daily in summer and at weekends in winter providing information on what to do and see plus there is a seasonal exhibition on Hen Harriers as well as ‘live’ images from a nest camera during the breeding season.
