  • Staff wonderful and friendly. The information presented well. Actual area small, which i found surprising. Services on site are impeccably clean. The shop is fun with plenty of merchandise on offer. The car park was quiet thankfully, had it not have been getting anything larger than a car in or out would be a nightmare. (We were in our camper van.) I think I would have preferred an environment that is less structured and exploration lead with more interactive applications. We were there approximately 1hr, and that wasn't a rushed visit.
  • The exhibition itself is a series of short films in different themed rooms. They cover the history and geography of the loch before moving onto its mysteries and the various studies into its famous and elusive resident. It is all interesting enough but there is nothing else to do after the films and young children may get fed up quickly. Some kind of museum or display area would be a big plus.
