Arinagour, Isle of Coll, PA78 6SY
For the stargazing adventure of (perhaps) a lifetime make your way to the remote Isle of Coll for this weekend exploring the incredible dark skies above the island.
This event is for anyone and everyone! No prior knowledge of astronomy is needed -- you'll experience dark skies like you have never done before. Absorb the views through large telescopes and let your mind take yourself away to distant galaxies!
A state of the art mobile planetarium will be on site as a great alternative if the weather doesn't play along.
After your long stargazing night and even longer lie-in go off to explore the wonderful scenery around the island.
Spaces are limited -- best book up soon before we do! Website link below...
