The Land, Sea and Islands Visitor Centre is on the site of a derelict smiddy in a stunning situation in the heart of Arisaig village.
A community project, The Land, Sea and Islands Centre houses an exhibition that celebrates the social and natural history of the area, both old and new, with photographic displays and artefacts. 'A Room with a View' affords a stunning vista of Arisaig bay - binoculars are provided, enabling visitors to observe shore and marine life from the comfort of the Centre.
Crofting, fishing, church history and marine life are all represented in the exhibition; the SOE and the films made here - 'Local Hero' being one of the most famous - are among the contents. The old forge has been renovated and forms a focal part of the display. Free admission has been introduced for 2012
The Centre also provides an information service to visitors, and houses a small shop selling books, local crafts, postcards etc.
