Unusual viewing spot, but a good location on a dark night.

The end of St Davids Harbour pier. Light pollution maybe a problem with the Forth Rail Bridge. But on a dark night it is a very clear viewing location. And is graced with excellent panoramic views and sky views. With nearly no obstructions.

There is also a ferry/ship metal tying post on concrete at the end. Which doubles nicely as a seat!

must admin am local to that area and my backgarden will give spectaculr views of milyway when available and its got warm house 15ft away :)

But this is a good possible location as its down by the water and the light polution is very low level....

good suggestion worth a try.
