Putechan Dark Sky Discovery Site

The Putechan Hotel near Bellochantuy on the west coast of the Kintyre peninsula received Dark Sky Discovery Site status from the Dark Sky Discovery programme in 2012 - the first place in Argyll to do so.

As well as having uninterrupted panoramic views of the night sky out over the western Atlantic, there is also very little light pollution. Enjoy the incredible star-gazing opportunities from the hotel's outdoor viewing areas. The West Kintyre Stargazers organise regular events during the winter at the hotel.
