Colintraive Heritage Centre

What can you do near the Colintraive Heritage Centre?

External display boards have information about the varied habitats and creatures found in the Kyles of Bute National Scenic Area Stand here in the summer, to listen to and watch the coming and goings of our swallows and other woodland birds.

The ‘green’ formerly part of the shinty pitch is a place for ball games. Walk across it to visit the polytunnel. In here, you can admire the variety of fruit, vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers grown in rented, raised beds by villagers. Alternatively, follow the path around the polytunnel, go through the gate. Then follow the path to the beautiful shores of the National Scenic Area of the Kyles of Bute.

Cross the road and walk behind the village hall to explore the Colintraive Community Garden. In this peaceful spot enjoy the variety of trees, shrubs, flowers, and sit by the pond. After heavy rain, the viewing platform over the Milton Burn is a wonderful place to stand and see and hear the waterfall.

Use the tables, benches, and outdoor shelter to admire the view, to picnic or watch the bowls. Young children can play in the Wendy house and sandpit.

Nearby is The Colintraive which provides a warm welcome and serves meals, snacks, and a variety of drinks and accommodation. There is also post office and small shop open from Monday to Friday from 9am to 12 noon.
