Experience stargazing on Scotland’s largest rooftop garden, at the end of this month, for an out of this world event for all the family. This event will take place on the evenings of the 25th/26th& 27th January, commencing at New Lanark’s Mill 3 Exhibition Gallery with a family friendly astronomy talk that will open your eyes to the starscape above and give you an insight to the evening ahead.
