Scottish Dark Sky Observatory


The Vernal (spring) Equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator, from south to north.

On the Equinox the Sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal (but not quite).

Visit the observatory for an Equinox night of stargazing, viewing the night sky through our large telescopes from a dark sky location.

Session starts at 8.00pm.

Tickets are priced at: Adults £15.00 and Concessions £10.00

  • Use of the telescopes for viewing the night sky is only possible when we have clear skies.
  • Events go ahead in all weather conditions except where roads are impassible due to snow.
  • Visit includes introductory presentation, stargazing guide and telescope tour.
