If you’re accustomed to seeing the night sky from your garden in a light-polluted town or city, you’ve never really experienced the wonder of space in its glory. With low light pollution and unrivalled vantage points, the Cairngorms are rightly regarded as one of the best places on Earth to view the Milky Way. Glenlivet and Tomintoul have been award ‘International Dark Sky Park’ status, making them the perfect place to lie on your back and gaze into the heavens. If this is your first visit to a Dark Sky Park, prepare to be overawed by what you will see.
