As a fun filled year of fieldwork with universities, schools and independent groups comes to a close FSC Millport continues to be a busy, bustling centre as the builders move in! Phase 3 of development; a £1.4 million investment in the centre is now underway.
This stage of the improvements includes enhancing the Millott building to match the accommodation standard in the new Elmhirst building finished earlier this year. All 28 bedrooms will be re-furbished and be made in to en-suite rooms and the kitchen and dining space will be upgraded.
The Robertson Museum and Aquarium is also going to be improved with new glass for the tanks and a new design within the museum to provide visitors with a more precise and enthralling history of marine research on Millport and of the Clyde ecosystem.
We cannot wait to see the results of these developments and are very excited to open up again and invite you to join us in celebrating the beautiful environments on the Isle of Cumbrae.
