“Good”

The Discovery Centre
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Liked it, nicely set out and informative. Staff were lovely. Only fault is they have a folder with Menus of local places but come on Guys.......when did you last bring that up to date? The prices were ancient. After reading 29s menu it seemed so cheap, we went over to 29 only to find the menu prices had risen by at least £5 each meal, meaning the example you have must be from years ago! Don't let your place down with something this simple. Otherwise great place.

I think the Discovery Centre was formerly known as The Winter Gardens when Rothesay was the main holiday attraction for West of Scotland residents. It now is packed with information on current issues and on the history of the island. Videos run constantly giving glimpses of a bygone age and information is readily available from the very friendly and helpful staff. The Centre is also the place where cruises on The Waverley can be booked.

Take a few minutes to walk round this exhibition and read about the local history. Go into the film room and watch the short film. The building itself is very interesting and you can imagine what the whole town would have been like in its heyday.
