We aim to rebuild the centre, torn to pieces by the recent hurricane force winds. Your kind words, and help is appreciated at this terrible time for such a brilliant business.
Set in a picturesque location overlooking Charleston Harbour, Gairloch Marine Wildlife Centre is an information, education and research centre dedicated to raising awareness of the marine environment through interpretive and interactive wildlife displays within the centre and associated boat trips The centre is the perfect place to learn about wildlife found around our shores from resident marine biologist
You can take a journey from the seashore out to the open sea and discover the huge diversity of wildlife found in the waters around Gairloch. We have a large viewing window overlooking the harbour where porpoise, otters, seals and many shore birds are often seen, and if you want to get even closer to the wildlife without disturbing it you can zoom in using our remote underwater and shore based cameras all from the comfort of the wildlife centre! Our cetacean sound booth allows you ‘listen in’ to the porpoise, dolphins and whales communicating with each other. You can become a wildlife detective and test your knowledge of the wildlife found around our shores. We have something for the whole family!
