Dark Skies: Hebridean Night Swim

Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 February 2021

A night-time adventure with Immerse Hebrides and Stornoway Astronomical Society, as part of the Hebridean Dark Skies Festival.

Join Immerse Hebrides for a swim in the cold Hebridean waters amongst the moon and stars. Following your swim we’ll have a short astronomical talk from a member of Stornoway Astronomical Society and sip some hot chocolate around the fire on the shore whilst warming up.

The swim will be in the Stornoway/Broadbay area and final location will be confirmed when conditions are clearer.
