‘I’m writing to say thank you for my amazing visit. I really enjoyed the Ice House because it was very interesting to see and learn about whale and dolphin bones. We all know that we should never drop the rubbish because it will harm the wildlife. You were very kind and helpful, thank you again.’ Portgordon Primary School P4/5 pupil
