Stargazing in Central Scotland

You’re spoilt for choice with dark skies in Central Scotland!

Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park has excellent dark skies for spotting the Milky Way, planets, and aurora.

Away from the lights of Glasgow, you could head north to the volcanic hills of Campsie Fells or south to Whitelee Windfarm.
