Well worth a visit, a real hidden gem. It's free and well worth a visit. On
Thursday afternoons they have sun-spotting sessions, though these may lead to
disappointment during Scottish summertime...

PS Don't forget you can go and look down the telescope at the stars on a Thursday night in the winter time.

I paid a visit there yesterday, quite a wee gem, hard to find tho....

Also posted a panorama of the view from the viewing area.

What IS that thing parked on the road below? A mouldy big purple one (ooh, er, missus) from Quality Street, a hogback Viking gravestone put into productive use as a planter, or an armoured sleeping policeman?
