The Well of Lecht Car Park

The Well of Lecht Car Park

A939 Old Military Road, Tomintoul, AB37

The Well of Lecht car park is a remote location at the foot of the Ladder Hills. The sky view is a little restricted due to adjacent hills however the old mine building (a short walk away) makes for an excellent foreground object for pictures of the Milky Way.


The Well of Lecht Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
