WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre wins Hospitality Awards prize

WDC’s Scottish Dolphin Centre in Spey Bay, Moray, has overcome strong competition to take the Family Venue of the Year prize at the 2016 Scottish Hospitality Awards hosted in Glasgow last night.

The Centre, which receives nearly 100,000 visitors each year, was up against venues such as Scottish SEA LIFE Centre, Deep Sea World, Blair Drummond Safari Park and The Scottish Equestrian Centre.

The awards, based on public vote, celebrate the very best in Scottish hospitality and commend the talented individuals and businesses dedicated to constantly delivering professionalism, effort and enthusiasm to ensure impeccable service to their customers.

This latest recognition for the Scottish Dolphin Centre follows the recent award of a Certificate of Excellence for the third year running by Trip Advisor, and a 4 star rating by Visit Scotland (Wildlife Experience).

“We are delighted to receive another award! Both local and visiting families enjoy spending a day out at the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre, so it is fantastic to win Family Venue of the Year,” says centre manager, Alison Rose. “Children and adults alike love to get a glimpse of the amazing dolphins that live in the waters of the Moray Firth, and can spend time at the Centre discovering more about their fascinating underwater lives and the threats they face,”.
