Hi Margaret, Thanks for your lovely review. Our team are very passionate about our aquarium so I'm glad you seen this first hand. Our feeds throughout the day are always extremely popular. I hope you'll be back to visit us again soon! Merry Fishmas!

There's no doubt in my mind that Loch Lomond is a fabulously scenic place, and the Sea Life Centre - a sort of brutalist 60's style building - contrasts with the colours and beauty seen across the loch. Somehow, though, the solid mass of the...More
