Stargazing in Hebrides

With incredible vistas and next-to-no light pollution, the archipelago of islands that form the Hebrides are a stargazer’s paradise!

The Inner Hebrides are closer to the mainland and include Skye, Mull and Jura. The Isle of Coll is one of only two islands globally that can boast of ‘Dark Skies Island’ status.

The Outer Hebrides is a chain of over 100 islands, including Lewis and
Harris. Stornaway offers numerous dark sky discovery sites and the annual Hebridean Dark Skies Festival.

With long winter nights and northern latitude, you’ll spot planets, the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy with your naked eye.
