    It is easy to see the Seabird Centre at the end of the promontory - and you are guided on your way to the entrance by a series of quite interesting sculptures that set you in the mood for the visit. i...  more »

  • Amazing trip out to Bass Rock on the catamaran. Couldn't have picked a better day weather wise. Obviously the highlight was seeing the thousands of gannets! The attitude of some of my fellow passengers was a disappointment, but was in no way a reflection of the Seabird Centre. Will 100%, definitely be back to explore the centre itself which we didn't have time to, and will be recommending the boat trips to everyone.
  • Good spot for coffee and cake. Great views with indoor and outdoor seating which is dog friendly- they supply water bowls. There are also toilets.
  • I love the service here, they go a step further and show where the money goes. It's really nice how cameras are set for a live stream on the remote islands etc. Annual boat tides head to craigleith to maintain the puffin population. The shop and cafe is wonderful with great staff
  • We stopped here for lunch great menu for adults and children. Also dog friendly so our whole family were welcome.
  • Great views and plenty to do for the kids. Lobster shack is amazing
