About The Octopus Centre

The Octopus Centre is Scotland’s first Marine Protected Area (MPA) visitor centre, and the UK’s first community-led MPA visitor centre. It is led by COAST with the people of Arran. This project has only come together thanks to the drive, skills and commitment of over a hundred volunteers working along with our staff, and through many generous donations and grants.
