Visit Us

Explore the wonders of Scotland's seas in our all new Discovery Experience. Control interactive live cameras to zoom in on amazing local wildlife. Soak up the coastal views from our Seabird Café, browse the sustainable gifts in our shop and get up close to the local wildlife on our seasonal boat trips. Following the Scottish Government announcement that mainland Scotland is to move into COVID protection level 4 from 26 December, the Scottish Seabird Centre is temporarily closed to the public until further notice. We look forward to welcoming you back when it is safe to do so.


We’ve made some important changes to how we operate to protect and reassure you during your visit. Although things will be a little different, we hope your visit will be as fun as ever.

Visit safely


Scotland's marine environment is exceptional and diverse. Over 18,000km of coastline, more than 900 islands, and around 61% of the UK's seas support more than 6,500 species of animals and plants.
