Places to stargaze in Galloway Dark Sky Park

Go stargazing in Galloway Dark Sky Park and enjoy amazing views of fantastic dark skies. The region covers 300 square miles that have been protected from light pollution. On moonless nights the Milky Way can be seen stretching from one horizon to the other. Thousands more stars are visible compared to a typical town or city. On the outskirts of the park you will find the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory – a beacon of public stargazing events.
