Over the festive period, Loch Lomond Sea Life Centre has been so lucky to have Santa visiting at his Grotto. Read on to see how he liked life amidst the fishes, and go see Santa who is there until the 23rd. For more information, visit their website here.  And remember that the Sea Life Centre is open on both January 1st and 2nd!

 How are you enjoying being SEA LIFE Loch Lomond’s Santa at Loch Lomond Shores?  
Ooooh, I’m enjoying it immensely. I was extremely happy to come to the beautiful shores of Loch Lomond at such a wonderful time of year and SEA LIFE feels a little bit like Christmas all year round.

Have you managed to introduce your reindeers to any of the animals in Sea Life?
Yes! Rudolph was very interested in meeting the otters – I wish I’d had my camera on me at the time.

What’s your favourite thing for people to leave out for you and your reindeers?
Well now, I rather enjoy a nice mince pie and the reindeers their carrots. A small glass of milk, would be welcome too or perhaps a wee dram of that famous Scottish whisky, I’ve heard so much about!

Are the kids at Loch Lomond Shores naughty or nice?
I’ve never met so many nice children in one place before.

What sort of presents are they asking for this year? 
Bikes, toy cars and L.O.L. dolls are very popular this year, but I’m touched by just how many children just want to enjoy the experience of the family being together and for people to be happy. I think that’s very special. Like I said before so many nice children.

What would your Christmas wish be?
Peace on Earth and goodwill to all.

What are your plans once you’ve delivered all the presents this year?
I thought I might have another look around SEA LIFE and then head home back to the North Pole and then sleep for a few weeks!
