Highland Astronomy and the Hebridean Dark Skies Festival team up for a special online stargazing event, in association with Calanais Visitor Centre and Gallan Head Community Trust. Join us from the comfort of your own home – or outdoors – for a fascinating insight into the night sky.

NB: Due to the new lockdown rules announced at the beginning of January we are no longer able to do our Highland Astronomy events at Scaladale and Grinneabhat. If you have already bought a ticket for these events you can either exchange it for a ticket for this event (including a partial refund) or request a full refund when An Lanntair’s box office reopens on Tuesday 19 January.

Stephen Mackintosh (Highland Astronomy) is a freelance astronomer, night sky photographer and STEM educator based in the Highlands of Scotland. He delivers public outreach astronomy talks, tours, and private stargazing events at select dark sky locations around the Inverness area and wider Highlands.

Stephen will be on hand to answer any questions you have, from ancient astronomy to what you can see in the night sky right now.

Once you have booked your tickets we will email you an online link to access the event.

The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival will run from Friday 5 February to Thursday 18 February, and is led by An Lanntair in partnership with Calanais Visitor Centre, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Gallan Head Community Trust, and Lews Castle College UHI.

The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Outer Hebrides LEADER 2014-2020 programme. We also want to say a huge thank you to Caledonian MacBrayne for supporting this year’s festival.
