We have a dazzling array of multi-dimensional aquarium displays housing everything from shrimps
and starfish to sharks and stingrays.
Almost all of the hundreds of sea creatures featured can be found beneath the lochs of the West Highlands or in the adjacent Atlantic. The diversity is breathtaking. People emerge genuinely awed by the range and variety of our native marine fauna.Perhaps the highlight of this journey through the wondrous world beneath the waves is the salmon ring, a unique doughnut-shaped display tank with a central viewing platform.
|Visitors are dizzied by the shimmering sight of a large shoal of silvery herring swimming in never-ending circles. It was once calculated that they travel - in an average lifetime - more than the distance to the moon and back!|
|A large waist-high pool is home to a number of species of rays, all of them apparently as intrigued about their human admirers as the humans are about them, nosing the surface to stare them straight in the eye.|
These are just a few of the delights to be discovered all undercover in The Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary.
