Meetings

The Society meets on the fourth Monday of the month September to May with dates published in advance on the website. Meeting times are 7pm till 9:30pm. At each meeting there is “time for a chat” when members get together to discuss scopes, astronomy kit and star gazing or just catch up with the gossip. We also have short talks from Members and a Guest speaker. Don’t worry if you are a newcomer or a beginner just join in the chat! We have all levels of experience and will be pleased to help. If you would like further information details or information please contact us via the E-Mail addresses located on the Contact Us page.  

Meetings are held at Loudoun Hall, 1 Boat Vennel,  Ayr , KA7 1HR

The Hall is located just off the Sandgate at the North end (river Ayr)
