The Scottish Sealife Sanctuary is an aquarium and seal sanctuary near Oban on the west coast of Scotland. On the shores of the beautiful Loch Creran the aquarium has over 50 displays where you can see everything from rays to otters.
In a woodland forest the sanctuary offers talks and feeding demonstrations and includes an opportunity to see resident seals being trained to make it easy for staff to give them health checks.
Injured seal pups are kept in a separate indoor pool until they reach a weight of 20 kilograms and are on the mend before being transferred to the outdoor nursery pool where they can learn to hunt for fish and gain enough weight to be returned to the sea.
The aquarium has a range of displays including brightly coloured clown fish, seahorses, shrimp, rays and something a bit less attractive!
After having a look around the aquarium and sanctuary it’s worth heading down to the shores of the loch for some stunning views.
The Scottish Sealife Sanctuary is a beautiful place to spend the day and who can resist the opportunity to see a baby seal?
