Take your opportunity to see the moon, and more, through the 129 year-old Newtonian reflecting telescope within the copper-domed Observatory at the Category A Listed Stirling Highland Hotel. This impressive building used to be Stirling High School building and was converted into an hotel in 1990.
No disabled access to Observatory.
Saturday 15th September: 7.00 – 9.30pm (evening only)
Sunday 16th September: 7.00 – 9.30pm (evening only)
Telescope viewing will be provided by Stirling Astronomical Society members. Group tours of up to 10 people will last approximately 30 minutes. This is a very popular event so you may have to queue but the hotel has kindly provided a room where you can watch a digital presentation while you wait. To avoid everyone arriving at the same time, if your party doesn’t have children please come after 8pm.
No disabled access to Observatory – due to the two flight spiral staircase but those unable to climb the stairs can enjoy the digital presentation.
