Galloway Astronomy Centre Discover the Dark Skies of Galloway enquiries@gallowayastro.com Tel: 01988 500594
The dark sky holiday location in Scotland. Open all year
Places in the UK where you can clearly see the Milky Way or even the Andromeda  Galaxy are hard to find.  The Galloway Astronomy Centre is located approx 20 miles south of the  Internationally recognised Gold Award Dark Sky Park at the Galloway Forest. With  our beautiful night sky free of light pollution viewing the planets, nebulae or  galaxies is unforgettable.  Whether you have only a passing interest in the night sky or you are deeply  interested in Astronomy we take you on a journey around our Solar System and  beyond to see the many wonders of the Universe.  Our tours are available to non residents too.  Our primary aim at the Centre is to ensure guests get maximum enjoyment from  a visit.  Do you have a star named after you? Just let us know the details and we can  advise the best time of year to visit to see your star. Choosing a telescope from the huge range available can be difficult. Our course Buying a Telescope will help  you select the right one for you. Even try out our demonstration telescopes. If you struggle with the telescope you already own our Setting Up a Telescope course will get you out there  enjoying the sky as you intended.      Experience for yourself our friendly, informal hospitality and truly dark skies.
Please note that the cottage and observatory  are non smoking throughout
There is a lot available at the Centre: Scope Shop - Skywatcher and Celestron Telescope Supplier Astronomy Courses - learn more about telescopes or the Night Sky Advice on Telescopes and Accessories Gift Vouchers - Buy someone you know a visit to the stars. Phone or email for details
