The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary closed down in autumn 2018. We've crossed our fingers that it'll reopen, and have left this page here just in case...

Justifiably a popular destination in wet weather, The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary is an excellent wildlife attraction on the west coast road between Oban and Glencoe. This is no ordinary aquarium: the centre plays an important role in rescue, recovery and re-wilding of abandoned seal pups from all over the country. Once old enough to graduate from the hospital wing, young seals move to an outdoor nursery pool (where they're at the centre of seal talks and demonstrations for visitors), and are finally returned to the sea once fully rehabilitated. Other star species include otters, rays and hundreds of different types of fish, spread across dozens of tanks and rooms. This all combines to create quite a sizeable area: attend the regular talk sessions and there's more than enough to fill a few hours. A word of warning: SEA LIFE markets the sanctuary as an Oban attraction, but it's actually more than 10 miles north of the town.
