Galloway Gathering – Autumn 2020

Wednesday 14th October 2020 from 12:00pm to Sunday 18th October 2020 12:00pm

Drumroamin Farm Camping & Caravan Site

Kirkinner, Newton Stewart, DG8 9DB


The Galloway Gathering star party is easily one of the most friendly, accessible and enjoyable stargazing events you could go to. The location itself is stellar -- low surrounding horizons and light-pollution free skies enable you to see the Milky Way from one horizon all the way across the sky to the other, making any journey here more than worthwhile. Along with excellent facilities you're guaranteed a warm welcome whether you are a novice astronomer or a pro!

- Event is a hosted at a dark sky location such as a remote campsite over several nights usually around a new moon when the skies are dark.
