Not a meeting but a site

Postby goldblade1983 » 27 Mar 2014, 13:51

Hi Guys

Been doing some research on a darksy map for local places with low light poluution. I came up with this place https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@56.255994,-3.5892496,17z - in the clearing on right hand side of road.

It's 30 min drive away from Inverkeithing. There's parking for about 3/ 4 cars. There's a tarmac section just off the road where you can set up (although last time I was up there was a pile of logs on it!). I usually just set up by roadside when on own anyway - the road is very quiet. I've been a few times now and I have to say it's very good given it's just 30 mins away - you can see milky way with naked eye when no or little moon (just). The site benefits from relatively high altitude and remains in a valley so there are some low lying hills on horizon which block light from central belt and from Perth.

I would highly recommend it. If anyone fancies going give me a shout on the mobile - I'm about to put the number on private bit of forum site.

Cheers
brian

Sounds and looks like an ideal dark site :)
