Charity Garden Open Day: Craigengillan Estate and Scottish Dark Sky Observatory
Peacefully set in a rugged ‘Highland’ landscape recognised by Historic Scotland’s Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes. Beautiful gardens, recently uncovered ‘rock and water garden’ by James Pulham & Sons. Extensive displays of native bluebells - great swathes of vibrant blue under the fresh greens of newly forming leaf canopies, which form the focus of the opening. There are some of the darkest skies that most people will ever see with shooting stars, planets and comets visible. Directions: A713 from Ayr, at the 30mph sign on entering Dalmellington turn right (signed Craigengillan Stables) - drive for approx 2¼ m. From Carsphairn side, stay on the main road and take first turning on left after the Jet petrol station.
2:00pm-5:00pm. £3.00, accompanied children free (for garden only). Proceeds to The Scottish Dark Sky Observatory & SG Beneficiaries
