The Loch Ness Centre gets a new lease of life with £1.5 million investment
Leading UK visitor attraction group, Continuum Attractions, is taking over one of Scotland’s most famous visitor attractions, The Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition, near Inverness, investing £1.5 million into its refurbishment and reopening in Spring 2023.
Continuum, owners of attractions across the UK and with a 20-year heritage in Scotland, is taking a long lease of the iconic Highland tourism site with immediate plans to upgrade the guest offer. The transformation will engage, entertain and inform guests, focusing on telling the globally renowned story behind the legend of Loch Ness, exploring the myths, alongside the scientific research, that has turned Nessie into one of Scotland’s most famous brand icons. The major refurbishment of the visitor experience will take 12 weeks to complete with a newly named The Loch Ness Centre reopening in Spring 2023.
The first exhibition was founded in May 1980 by Ronnie Bremner and designer Tony Hamsworth. The following winter, in conjunction with naturalist Adrian Shine, leader of the Loch Ness Project a life long partnership was formed between the Loch Ness Centre and the Loch Ness Project which continues to this day with the Projects laboratory and research centre on site. Continuum’s investment in a new five-star attraction will further unlock the mysteries and history of the world-famous destination and its many year round activities and attractions.
