dark skies,north wales

Recommended Posts

Anywhere south of the A 55 you can easily get away from the coastal light pollution. I live in Anglesey and the skies are pretty good especially along the north coast and around the Newborough area.

The skies north of Barmouth are excellent, to the west you have the Irish Sea, to the east are high hills (up to 1,600 feet above sea level), the only major towns are Harlech and Barmouth and these do not give off any real light pollution at all. There are many camp sites and other forms of accommodation in the area, if you go out of season you can get much better rates. Only down side is when it rains, it rains a lot. You cannot win with the weather in this country.
