Get starry-eyed surveying Holyrood's dark skies

Media Releases

Give yourself some space this weekend – come star-gazing at Holyrood Park and learn all about the wonders of the night skies over the capital city. The Historic Scotland Ranger Service, which cares for the Park, has joined forces with experts from the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh to host a unique, inter-active astronomy event this Saturday, 27th February. ‘Dark Skies’ takes place in the Holyrood Park Education Centre and at its two sessions - from 2pm to 5.30pm and from 7pm to 9pm - you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to locate and identify planets, stars and galaxies, and to discover why the Park is such a great place to star-gaze. There’s also a chance to enjoy hands-on activities such as comet making, rocket launching and meteorite handling, and to experience an interactive inflatable star-lab.

Minister for Culture & External Affairs' speech at the Historic Govan Launch

Media Releases

"It’s a great pleasure to be here in Govan today, particularly in this magnificent building. The Pearce Institute is a great example of how buildings can really represent a community’s confidence, success and sense of itself, something for which Govan should rightly be celebrated. But this building reminds us how communities have to adapt to meet changing circumstances. That we are here today to launch Historic Govan represents the resilience of both the building, and the community as a whole. And what a community. Govan is truly remarkable and has an extraordinarily rich and diverse history. Quite simply, it is one of the longest surviving communities in Scotland. As Stephen Driscoll’s excellent work shows, Govan Old Parish Church is a potent symbol of community and continuity. The tombs, stones and other monuments it contains are simply breathtaking."
