Garn Fawr Car Park Dark Sky Discovery Site


Being located near the summit of the road between Garn Fawr and Garn Fechan, the elevated position and remote location gives good views of the sky, with little local light pollution.

The National Trust parking area, although slightly sloping is well surfaced. The nearby hills offer an interesting backdrop even if they do reduce overall visibility in certain directions. The Milky Way is very clearly visible. Excellent viewing to the south, as far as the eye can see between east south east and west south west.





The Coronavirus crisis is not over so some restrictions remain in place in Wales. Please understand that things may be slightly different to what you may be used to. This includes a 2 METER social distancing rule. You will also be asked to provide your name and details of where you are staying when you book restaurants or tickets for activities/attractions. This is necessary for the track & trace system which helps to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, to protect our communities, the public and our health services.

Please help us to look after the health of our communities and to protect our environment, land and seascapes .
