CAIRNGORMS DARK SKY PARK
To Infinity and Beyond!
Grantown is an ideal base for stargazing and viewing the Northern Lights.
Due to the low levels of artificial light, from October to March our clear starlit dark skies of the Cairngorms National Park have few rivals for these natural phenomena.
Stunning night skies with easy access, allowing everyone a chance for a view not to be missed.
The Cairngorms Dark Sky Park, created in 2018 is only the second to be established in Scotland and the world’s most northerly. It has several easily accessible viewing sites dotted around Tomintoul and Glenlivet. Tomintoul, recognised as the highest village in the Highlands, is only a 30 minute drive from Grantown, so long as the ‘Snow Road‘ is not closed for access in the depths of winter. The Cairngorms offer great vantage points for guests to view the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and all just a short walk from our transport.
Always good to hear what people think about my tours!
