Ballantrae KA26 0NB United Kingdom
Enjoy a memorable night under the stars, on this romantic stargazing break for two. Relax with luxurious accommodations in a five-star castle hotel, and enjoy an evening of guided stargazing on the edge of Galloway Forest Park; the UK’s first accredited Dark Sky Park. A Dark Sky ranger will personally instruct this awe-inspiring, celestial experience.
Glenapp Castle is a stunning venue nestled in the Scottish woods and overlooking the Irish Sea. Restored and redesigned as a luxury five-star hotel, the castle has been a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux Association since 2001. The former home of Scottish nobility including the Earl of Inchcape, each guest room is individually decorated and furnished with antiques and fine oil paintings. Set on the Ayrshire coastline, the grounds provide spectacular views of the Isle of Arran and Ailsa Craig. The restaurant at Glenapp is itself a reason to visit and holds 3 AA Rosettes. The Glenapp dining rooms showcase the impressive Scottish larder and feature fresh and local Ayrshire produce. Heading out to the castle grounds one evening, just outside Galloway Forest Park, you will be joined by a Dark Sky ranger for an unforgettable, guided stargazing experience. There are only three accredited Dark Sky Parks in Europe, and Galloway provides one of the best spots in the UK for stargazing. This memorable break is the perfect way to celebrate an important birthday or anniversary, or really, what better place is there to ask a very important question than under a clear, starlit night sky?
Times and locations will be given in a personalised itinerary after booking. Please contact your Truly Concierge for more information.
