Dark Skies

As the nights draw in and get darker, the night skies become the focus in this area. If we are lucky to have clear skies, the stars and the Milky Way are breathtaking.

Waternish has three designated Dark Skies viewing sites, but the reality is – switch off the lights, let your eyes accustom for 10 minutes, then step outside of Auld Mission Cottage and what wonders you will behold! And if you are lucky to have a dark night and an Aurora! (go to Dark Skye Discovery to learn more).
