It's like an adventure. Even though cloudy night they projected and described stars - very informative. Can't wait to go on clear night!

you get a tour round the observatory, with the guide happy to answer questions and let you linger on things you find interesting.
the planetarium show was excellent, very interesting and descriptive of what happens in the night sky.
they also have solar viewings held in the observatory gardens, it's well worth a go. all is free so ideal for that day with not much on.

We would like to Thank our 2 Guides at the Observatory.
They were really Kind and gave us a detailed tour of the Observatory
and even led us to Paisley Museum.
Congratulation for a very well kept place (Observatory and Museum)
We miss a lot Scotland and God wills we shall return soon.

Interesting Victorian observatory including 10inch telescope. Lots and lots of stairs ! Check opening times on the Council web site - it's not always open.
