Based in Blair Atholl, the Atholl Estates Ranger Service operates throughout the estate. We assist visitors in their understanding and enjoyment of the area and also play a role in countryside education and conservation. We manage nine way-marked trails for walkers and cyclists on the estate.
The Ranger Service is part-funded by Cairngorms National Park. It runs the Blair Atholl Information Centre, located in Blair Atholl close to the gates of Blair Castle Caravan Park. The centre features a display on the workings of the estate, offers some activities for children and provides information on what to do in the area, making the centre a helpful reference point if you are planning any outdoor activities. It also provides a free wifi service! Click here to see their amazing achievements in 2016/17.
The centre is open from 9.00am to 4.45pm daily, between Easter and October.
Our Ranger Service runs a varied programme of countryside events through the year looking at the local wildlife and scenery.
