Astro-tourism trail opens in the Cambrian Mountains, Wales

The Cambrian Mountains has just opened a new astro-tourism trail recognising its recent accolade as one of the UK’s top spots to go star-gazing.

Six stellar places have been awarded Dark Sky Discovery Site status, putting them right up there on the celestial map.

The trail, which covers a driving distance of just over 50 miles, can be visited over the course of a few nights for a glimpse of Orion, The Great Plough and the North Star.

It is accompanied by an illuminating Cambrian Mountains & Elan Valley Dark Sky Guide which details what to look out for throughout the year with a pair of binoculars or telescope.

The public can find the new Dark Sky Discovery Site locations at:

•Mynydd Llanllwni Mountain, Llanllwni, Sir Gâr/Carmarthenshire
•Cronfa Ddŵr Llyn Brianne Reservoir, Rhandirmwyn, Sir Gâr/Carmarthenshire
•Coed Y Bont, Pontrhydfendigaid, Ceredigion
•Y Bwa/The Arch, Coedwig Ystwyth Forest, Ceredigion
•Pont ar Elan Car Park, Cwm Elan Valley, Powys
•Y Star Inn Car Park, Dylife, Powys
