Airdrie Observatory - Image 1

Situated above Airdrie Library, this C(s) listed building is a unique part of Airdrie’s built heritage.  Being one of only four such municipal Public Observatories in the United Kingdom, Airdrie is the smallest of the Public Observatories and it dates back to 1896. 

The Observatory is located above Airdrie Public Library and is a facility owned by North Lanarkshire Council and run in partnership with Airdrie Astronomical Association. The original telescope was donated to Airdrie Library by local astronomer Doctor Reid.  It is also Scotland's smallest public observatory.

In 2009 the telescope was dismantled and removed from site to allow an overhaul and extensive refurbishment to be undertaken.  Additional works including installing a new Observatory dome and Library Roof were also undertaken at this time.

Observatory: no wheelchair access, up 4 flights of stairs
