Stargazers will appreciate the ‘dark sky’ above The Walled Garden site and only 15 miles away is the world’s first large public use observatory within a gold tier Dark Sky Park at Craigengillan Estate, Dalmellington. Its location, on the edge of the Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park, set up in 2009 by Forestry Commission Scotland, means that it enjoys some of the darkest skies in the world; the park itself being one of only ten in the world to be recognised by the International Dark-sky Association. Countless stars, the Milky Way, shooting stars, planets, comets and the Northern Lights are all visible from the area. The new observatory will provide a spectacular opportunity to view and appreciate the night sky through state-of-the art telescopes and imaging equipment.
