This area was under construction at the time of our survey, so we couldn't access the space on the north side of the gallery.

Layout

The northwest corner of the building juts out to give a quarter circle of space, curving from the west to the north side.

As we move west from the Scottish Wildlife gallery, we go up a slight slope, entering in the southeast corner of the gallery.
