Visited here yesterday on a trip to North Berwick. After buying the tickets and heading in, I thought we wouldve been done in 5 minutes but I was definitely wrong!
There were many things to see and do here - there were various talks and cameras to look at the various islands. We were just in time for the puffin talk which focusses on Craigleith which was very interesting. There was also a talk about rock pools, talking about the various animals you find in the pools, using their tanks as examples.
The staff were absolutely fantastic. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and easy to talk to. This centre definitely wouldn't have been anywhere near as good without them.
I would definately recommend coming here between April-July as that is when the birds nest otherwise you really won't be able to see any birds of interest on any of the islands.
I can't understand some of the bad reviews of here. Why come here if your not into bird watching in some form of description especially with younger children who aren't remotely interested.
The only downside to the centre is the cafe is quite expensive. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in birds. I will definitely be back to go on one of the boat trips!
