Night vision specialist – Our story

Night vision specialist, is family run partnership and first opened its doors in early 2001. In the very early days, it offered a wide range of clothing and field sports accessories spread over three floors of a traditional high street shop in Castle Douglas. The move to eCommerce was a natural progression and the business moved fully online in 2009. Personal shopping is still available by appointment only.

The products portfolio has evolved over time to focus on night vision, thermal imaging technology and associated products.

With our depth of expertise, and range of products, Night vision specialist is now the most recognised specialist retailer of these products in the around the world.
