Scottish Dark Sky Observatory
Galloway Tourist Route
Located in the beautiful Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park, the observatory is perfectly placed for taking in the crystal-clear night skies above.
Book tickets to one of the observatory’s events to drink in the wonder of the inky black night skies and see stars sparkling like jewels above.
During an evening session you’ll get a guided tour of the constellations and planets using the observatory’s high-powered telescopes. During the day you can also visit the observatory (with pre-arrangement) to do some solar observing and terrestrial viewing of the beautiful landscapes around you. Tip! Tickets must be booked in advance before your visit to the observatory.
