Highland Regional Council Ranger Service in Assynt
Upstairs in the Visitor Centre is the base for the Ranger Service in Assynt. The Rangers run and maintain the Ranger Hut at Clachtoll, organise walks and events throughout the year and provide an information service for the locals as well as visitors. Their programme of events is published annually, both on a local sheet and in "What's On in Caithness and Sutherland".
In the Centre, there are facilities for watching the local heronry on CCTV, in season, and a reference library of material on natural history, geology, and local history.
