Discovery Centre
Learn more about Arran’s Marine Protected Area

The COAST Discovery 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.

We thank our funders and all the people who have donated their time, talent or money towards this project.
