Galloway Forest Park, Scotland

It is believed over 7,000 stars and distant planets can be observed with the naked eye from this 185,000-acre park, the first Dark Sky Park in the U.K. It has three visitors’ centers, with one of the them overlooking Clatteringshaws Loch and the forest’s unlit center – a perfect haven to gaze at the nocturnal spectacle.
