was closed (maybe due to Covid or being 4pm?) but it's still lovely to sit in the sheltered hide areas and just look out to sea. Quite a few Eiders today

This place is well worth visiting, for anyone with even the slightest interest in birds or wildlife in general. The area is stunning so even if the observatory isn't open, it's still worthwhile. The warden, Eddie, is so passionate and full of knowledge, and is happy to teach novices like myself. I learnt a lot in my few hours there,and look forward to returning. PS - The place is run and funded by volunteers, so if visiting I am sure they would appreciate a donation - however small - to their costs.

Visited today for the first time. Met Eddie the warden. Well what a wonderful experience!!! Amazing wildlife, amazing man who tells you all about the incredible wildlife you can see from the warm hide. Bought a copy of Eddies DVD to help them continue the great service and the fab facilities provided. Great place for a wheelchair user to visit. I can not recommend this place highly enough - GO
