Culloden Battlefield, Culloden Moor, IV2 5EU
On several Fridays each month throughout the winter season members from Highlands Astronomical Society open the doors to their Jim Savage-Lowden Observatory to the public for observing sessions.
Note that this schedule of opening is based on the lunar calendar -- the observatory is only open when there is no moon in the sky and the skies are dark -- therefore it may not actually be open on this particular date!
Please check the Highlands Astronomical Society's website homepage to confirm that this event is taking place as these events are also weather dependent.
- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.
This event is being organised by Highlands Astronomical Society who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling. If you do attend it would be fantastic if you could let the organiser know you found them via Go Stargazing!
Please contact Highlands Astronomical Society directly for more details regarding this event or, if appropriate, contact the event venue.
