Abriachan Forest Trust
Abriachan, Inverness, IV3 8LB
Come along to Abriachan forest for a light hearted Burns’ celebration with a stargazing twist. With clear skies and dark of the Moon conditions we’ll be out under the stars with guiding from astronomer Stephen Mackintosh while the Abriachan staff will provide some traditional Burns’ Supper fare (both vegetarian and the meaty mix options)and some Cotter’s Saturday night tales from forest ranger Clelland.
If skies are inclement Stephen will instead present an indoor talk on the planet Venus (now a bright evening star) and some astronomical and scientific highlights from the enlightment, which shone during the time of Rabbie Burns. Booking required.
