The Field of Hope Car Park
Tomintoul, Ballindalloch, Banffshire, AB37 9ET
Come along and celebrate our Dark Sky Park with a telescope session focused on galaxies. Hopefully, we’ll see our nearest neighbouring galaxy Andromeda, the furthest object we can see with the naked eye at 2.5 million light-years away!
Join us for tea, telescopes and brain-tingling space facts…
