Glenlivet & Tomintoul Dark Sky Site


Glenlivet and Tomintoul are some of the best spots to gaze at the night sky in search of stars and constellations. The high quality of the night skies in Moray have earned the area a prestigious award by becoming Scotland’s second International Dark Sky Park. The Tomintoul & Glenlivet - Cairngorms Dark Sky Park is not only the darkest park in the UK but it is also the most northerly Dark Sky Park in the world.  Come along for a night of star gazing, join in astronomy events that are held throughout the year, and learn more about the Dark Skies Project too.
