Local photographer Iain Cochrane has kindly provided us with these photos of the recently renovated Winter Gardens Discovery Centre in Rothesay.

Significant external repair work costing over £500,000 was carried out at the Category A-Listed building, including replacement of roof coverings, overhaul of windows and installation of new light fittings. Additionally, metal panels and fixtures were replaced and the exterior of the building freshly decorated.
