Hot Tub Star Gazing
Relaxing in your private hot tub is great at any time however, on a clear, cool night we highly recommend sinking in to your hot tub with a glass of fizz and taking in the dark skies!
Dark Skies Scotland have a handy guide you can use with tips on stargazing for every season.
If you are staying at Conifer Lodges, you may want to drive to Kirroughtree Dark Sky Park for uninterrupted dark skies and then head back to your hot tub to warm up!
