We spent a lovely morning being shown around the underwater sea life in Loch Lomond. The travel guide was very knowledgeable and the underwater adventure was amazing. There were also otters there on display.

Took my 1 year old and was very disappointed. So expensive and not much to see. We were in and out in 20mins. My son loved the otters but the tank is so dirty can hardly see anything in there. Waste of moneyMore
