The Uk’s first Dark Sky Park. Entered an area of wonder & exploration. All around you are plants and animals that rely on the daytime sun. But at night, we enjoy a perfectly dark sky, studded with thousands of stars and the Milky Way stretching overhead from horizon to horizon. Here you can gaze…
Visit the forest and stop off at The Otter Pool where kids and adults alike can paddle and enjoy the forest. Picnic tables and toilets available. Go back at night and enjoy stargazing in the Forest Galloway Dark Sky Park.
Lovely drive from Ayr trough the forestry commission - stop for a picnic and breathe in the fresh air
