The Galloway Gathering star party is easily one of the most friendly, accessible and enjoyable stargazing events you could attend. The location itself is stellar — low surrounding horizons and light-pollution free skies enable you to see the Milky Way from one horizon across the sky to the other, making any journey here more than worthwhile. In addition, the venue has excellent facilities, and everyone can expect the warmest of welcomes, whether novice astronomer or a pro!
