Our Dark Skies
Come and see over a thousand stars

Being on the edge of Europe means that the UK has some of the largest areas of dark sky in the continent and being the edge of the UK means that we have one of the best areas of dark sky in the country and certainly one of the darkest in Europe. In fact, our night sky can get so inky dark that over 7,000 stars and planets can be visible with the naked eye.

All you have to do is go outside on a clear night, give your eyes time to adjust to the dark and then look up. You can even see our own galaxy, The Milky Way, stretching across the sky. This is a privilege that so few people in our county have, so why not come here and let us share it with you.

Where to go to enjoy the

While you are here you can simply walk out to the front of
the lodge or across the road to the Loch shore to find a spot to
view the night sky as it is dark enough here to see the Milky
Way and there are good sightlines to the sky in all

However, you can go a little further afield if you
wish and here are some of the places we would recommend:
