Really very helpful tourist info spot and cheery guide corrected us on things that the guide book had wrong. Also had good knowledge on local conditions affecting walks etc. Impressive surroundings and full cafe next door. Plus smart and clean toilets.

We were looking for local and regional maps and they had a comprehensive selection in their shop so well worth a visit. There was also a lot of leaflets and information available to take away and of course the staff present who were most helpful.
