Britain’s first purpose-built public observatory, enjoying a magnificent woodland setting on the summit of Balgay Hill. From inside you can watch stars and planets through telescopes, or admire the scenery with some spectacular treetop vistas across the silvery Tay. They also have space exploration and astronomical displays, planetarium shows and a fully computerised telescope that can detect 30,000 objects in the sky. Yeah, you heard that right: 30,000 objects! Prepare to be suitably amazed.
