Galloway Forest Park first Dark Sky Park in the UK

Galloway Forest Park

Forestry Commission Scotland has established part of Galloway Forest Park as the first Dark Sky Park in the UK. Announced on 16th November 2009 in the International Year of Astronomy, it is a massive achievement for the UK and the south West of Scotland.

As you drive from Laurieston towards High Lochenbreck this is the sign that will welcome you as you enter Laurieston Forest, part of the Galloway Forest Park.

The photographs below were all taken from the Byre patio in mid-August 2013 by one of our guests.
