The excellent Road to the Isles photographic exhibition continues at the Centre. The exhibition comprises wonderfully atmospheric Scottish landscape images by talented photographer, John McKenna. Do come along to view it.

Autumn is here and has brought with it some lovely weather. Good light and good autumnal colours make it a very special time of year to visit the west coast.

Wildlife Camera

A new and exciting addition to our website is the live camera  footage from a local heronry!  The footage can be viewed on your own devices, or watched while visiting the Centre. 

The herons have finished nesting but still return to the trees to roost. It won’t be long before February comes, and the nesting cycle begins again.
