Gallan Head, the most north-westerly point in the UK, is one of the country’s most extraordinary and distinctive dark sky spots. Formerly an RAF radar station, this dramatic clifftop location is now owned by Gallan Head Community Trust, who have been developing it as a site for environmental protection and whale watching. In September 2018 Gallan Head hosted its first art festival, and there are ambitious plans to build a new observatory, supported by John Brown, astronomer royal for Scotland.
As part of the Hebridean Dark Skies Festival, Gallan Head will host events with John Brown and other names tbc, including – weather permitting – the chance to experience some of the most breathtaking views of the stars in the whole of the UK.
