Fodor's Expert Review Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary

Oban Family

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

On the shores of Loch Creran, this marine sanctuary is part aquarium, where you can get an up-close look at everything from sharks to stingrays, and part animal-rescue facility. Adorable otters and seals receive rehabilitation here before being released back into the wild. Kids will appreciate the adventure playground. The restaurant serves morning coffee, a full lunch menu, and afternoon tea. To get here, drive 10 miles north from Oban on the A828; West Coast Motors also provides regular bus service.
