Now open for the season

The Islay Natural History Centre is now open for the season. It is a wet and somewhat cold week, especially today, can someone remind the weather it is nearly summer! The island is very busy for the Islay Feis and Whisky Festival. So if you are not currently enjoying the music and locally distilled beverages call in and see us, new displays and the first residents of the aquaria have moved in.

This is the cast carapace of the now bigger crab in the tank which went from 5cm across to 7 cm across, pulling itself out of the old shell in front of our eyes - very cool!
