  • Inservice day from school..... Took my two boys up to see the improvements, can't see what's different! We have always loved taking a trip there, the main tank was beautifully cleaned so maybe that's ...  more »
  • Great place too take the kids too. Under 're development at the moment though should be even better once finished.
  • I've taken my son here twice and will definitely be going again soon. It's not too expensive and I love that all the fish on display (except for one small tank) are all local fish. I love how it's laid out. The large central tank is very peaceful to sit and watch. We sat though a talk which was informative and friendly. I have met several members of staff who are all very friendly and well informed. My son particularly loved the tanks where you can put your hand in the water and gently touch the creatures lurking in the shallows. An educational and entertaining day out.
  • Have visited Macduff aquarium a few times now and always thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It is a reasonably small aquarium but there are so many creatures to see you can happily spend a couple of hours here. We managed to catch three feeding/talk sessions today which was great. Looking forward to our next visit when it reopens for summer.
  • A small, yet breathtaking marine aquarium in the quiet coastal town of Macduff. It is quite a trek from most places, but well worth the visit. The staff are knowledgable, passionate about their job, and helpful. The fish are superb. I'd go every weekend if I could, as my kids love it. Be aware that there is nowhere to eat at the aquarium, and Macduff isn't blessed with many good places to get lunch.
  • We had a lovely day out here. There were a lots of hands on activities and the staff were very informative and friendly. It's not a huge place, but it's well worth the visit!
