Tomintoul & Glenlivet Discovery Centre
The Square, Tomintoul, Banffshire, AB37 9ET

If you’re wondering how to develop your business or tourism offering within the Dark Sky Park, this event is for you! Join us for an evening of networking and discussing leveraging our dark sky status for business growth.

Join the Tomintoul and Glenlivet Dark Sky Team for a welcome drink in our Dark Skies exhibition and browse the museum displays. After an introduction, we’ll share some news and success stories before heading down to Tomintoul’s Dark Sky Discovery Site for a dark sky experience. Please wear outdoor clothing, waterproof shoes or boots.

We’ll return to the Discovery Centre, where there will be food, refreshments, and a Q&A session with Dark Skies working group members on how we can support the local community and businesses in the future. What do you need to succeed?

Members of the Dark Skies working group from Glenlivet Estate, the Cairngorms Astronomy Group, the Cairngorms Business Partnership, and Tomintoul & Glenlivet Development Trust will be available to chat informally and answer any questions you may have before the event wraps up at 8 pm. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from our passionate advocates who can support you in developing your astrotourism offering.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
