  • A lovely attraction. My 2 year old loved it. Was around the whole thing quite quickly but we were in and out to watch the talks and feeding. No sea turtle despite that being the main attraction and a bit small for the price also gift shop was too pricey hence the 4 stars. I would recommend. I loved watching the otters being fed
  • A good place for young children to experience. The complex is very clean and staff are helpful and friendly. Cafe is reasonably priced, good seating, clean and splendid views of the loch and surrounding area. Free parking 5 minutes walk from Aquarium.
  • Great we place. We booked online and saved 30% then walked in with the e mail. Staff were really knowledgeable and stood chatting with lots of great facts. Caff√® is reasonably priced with amazing views. Never used the cinema. Well worth the visit. Wish we'd gone in a bit earlier as they were starting to close. We went in at half 3 and they shut at half 5. We'd go back again.
  • Had a great morning here for my wee ones birthday party. Staff was amazing, lunch was in the restaurant with stunning views. Kiddies and adults both had a brilliant time! Thank you
  • A little on the small size but has lots to view. The otters at feeding time was fun to watch. Great views of Loch Lomond available from the top of the building. Good place to bring kids and reasonably priced.
