Loch Doon Dark Sky Observatory - South Ayrshire

Loch Doon Dark Sky Observatory, south of Dalmellington, South Ayrshire, Scotland

The Scottish Dark Sky Observatory was just to the north of Loch Doon.

Sadly it caught fire and burnt down in the early hours of 23rd June, 2021.

At the moment we're not sure if there are plans to rebuild it any time soon.

Meantime we've left the images in place and removed the directions as of course there's nothing to visit and access to the empty site is closed.
