    nice place for the kids and gaining local knowledge of sea life in our waters. My son loved the sting rays and the touch pools.  more »

    I have visited the aquarium three times now and it is always a joy. This was our first visit as a family with our 13 month old son. It was perfect for him. Spacious enough to push him around in his bu...  more »

    We took our 6 month old grandson. We found it to be perfect for slowly going round letting him spend lots of time staring in wonder into the tanks at the many fish. We all enjoyed the feeding by the d...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Great place, very friendly staff and some great sights to be seen. However despite all that was on offer, my 16 month old son was more fascinated by the small set of stairs he could climb up and down! Definitely somewhere we could come visit again and again.
