 The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary at Barcaldine has a new feature for 2011 - a collection of turtles. The centre is found on the shore of Loch Creran on the A828 when going north from Benderloch towards Fort William.

The entrance - look for the large carved seals on the roadside!

More information about the centre - opening times, attractions, otter, seal and shark feeding times - human feeding at the cafe - the shop - here

If you book your tickets online during July 2011 you'll get a discount.

There is now a cycling/walking track from the centre running north to the Creagan Bridge over Loch Creran and beyond towards Appin. Other parts of this track are now open from Oban to Dunbeg, at Benderloch, and from Kentallen through Ballachulish to Glencoe. In time all these sections will be connected to make the Red Fox Trail between Oban and Fort William.
