Bennachie Colony Trail App Project

Heritage Lottery Fund Logo

Our app aims to chronicle the stories and the histories of rural life for the Bennachie Colonists who had homes on Bennachie in the 19th and early 20th Century in imaginative ways that are accessible to current and future generations.

The Digital Bennachie Colony Trail app is available to download free from app stores for both Android and Apple operating systems. Users should remember to download the app before leaving home as at present the Bennachie Visitor Centre does not have wifi. However 3D virtual reality viewers for smartphones will be available to purchase at the Centre.

You can download this app from:

Please also see the new Colony Trail Leaflet 2024 (PDF) download for lots of information about your visit to Bennachie.
