Grand Opening of Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre
On Saturday 9th November, more than 300 visitors attended the grand opening of the Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre at Loch Lomond Shores in Balloch.
The recently relocated centre has taken four months to construct but it was certainly worth the wait.
Visitors travelled from as far as Cheshire and the Isle of Skye to join in the celebrations which included the official opening by BBC television presenter, Paul Murton and live music from Clann An Drumma.
Stewart Robertson, Bird of Prey Centre Director, said:
“The grand opening was the culmination of a lot of hard work put in by a great many people. The atmosphere was amazing and to see so many new friends and long term supporters there to celebrate with us was quite overwhelming".
“Although it was an emotional day, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and was full of praise and enthusiasm for the new centre. That makes the effort all worthwhile”.
Clare Gemmell, Loch Lomond Shores Manager, said:
“I am delighted to welcome Stewart and his team at the Bird of Prey Centre to Loch Lomond Shores. It is the most fantastic centre and an asset to the complex. I am confident visitors will love seeing the magnificent birds and learning all about them from Stewart whose knowledge is second to none”.
The Bird of Prey Centre is home to over thirty birds of prey, representing more than twenty species. It is open daily from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Loch Lomond Shores is the gateway to Scotland’s first national park and is situated at Ben Lomond Way, Balloch, G83 8QL
