The meeting, which was attended by members of Killiecrankie Community Council, the National Trust for Scotland and visitor centre staff, presented an opportunity to discuss future opportunities and challenges for the centre, as well as ways to maximise potential commercial gains. 

Commenting, Mr Swinney said:

“This was a productive meeting, and I am pleased with the level of engagement displayed by all stakeholders.

“The tone of the meeting was positive, highlighting the important role that the Killiecrankie Visitor Centre plays in promoting local history and re-affirming our commitment to ensuring the long-term sustainability of the facility.

“Going forward, I will work with those involved to ensure that the visitor centre can continue to provide an excellent service to those visiting Killiecrankie.”

Cllr. Williamson added:
