STARGAZING AND THE DARK SKY PARK

On a clear night, the skies over Dumfries and Galloway have an unrivalled view of the stars. Galloway Forest Park is an internationally recognised Dark Sky Park, the first of its kind in the UK and only the second of its kind in Europe.

 

Take advantage of this spectacular natural scenery during your countryside retreat by visiting the Kirroughtree Dark Sky visitor centre, and exploring the region by night. The Kings hosts groups of visiting astronomers to appreciate the magnificent views and snap photographs of the stars.

     

You can see 7000 stars and planets without a telescope, and if you're lucky you might even see the silver line of the Milky Way.

Book your stargazing trip now!
