Scottish Seabird Centre

Scottish Seabird Centre Situated on a rocky promontory on the north side of North Berwick Harbour, the Scottish Seabird Centre helps you about natural habitat of seabirds, together with the wider environment. Opened in 2000 by Charles, Prince of Wales, the centre occupies a futuristic building that makes use of traditional and environmentally-sustainable materials in its construction. The Edinburgh-based architects Simpson & Brown have designed the building based on sweeping curves, with a copper roof supported on dry-stone walls. Locally sourced materials have been used wherever possible, for example the stone comes from Bangly Quarry in the Garleton Hills and the cement from East Barns. A particular feature of the Centre is its live video connections to the seabird colonies on the nearby islands of Fidra, Craigleith and the Bass Rock.

The Scottish Seabird Centre aims to promote an appreciation of Scotland's natural environment and establish a Centre of excellence for the study of seabirds. In short, the Scottish Seabird Centre is an award winning wildlife visitor centre and one of Scotland's five star attractions. From its stunning location overlooking the sea and islands of the Forth, visitors enjoy a close encounter with nature to remember.
