The Scottish Owl Centre, Campbeltown

Unexpected tourist attraction #347: The Scottish Owl Centre in Campbeltown.

We were very lucky to find this by accident, lurking outside Campbeltown on the B842 to Machrahanish. The Scottish Owl Centre is the only Scottish centre devoted to owls (clearly) and one of only two owl centres in the UK. The other is in Cumbria, but you all knew that, right? I bet you're up there all the time.

So yeah, owls. They're amazing. Big ones, small ones, white ones, brown ones, all the Harry Potter ones. It really is an excellent place because if you arrive about 2.30ish you get a free owl show, from a trained owl handler, armed with owl facts with all the special party owls.

If you've never been stared at quizzically by a pair of great grey owls, you haven't lived.
