An interesting centre, however its limited resources are obvious here. A good place to go with children and lots suitable for their age bracket, but could do with being slightly bigger with more to exhibit. Still worth a visit of you're in Lochinver.

We visit everytime we come up to this area. There are interactive displays, live nest cams (not always), local history, children's activities, info on local wildlife sightings, a seating area with binoculars for looking out over the bay and lovely staff. Highly recommended.
