Walking and Wildlife Adventures have received a favourable response to our application to become a Dark Skies area. Last month we put forward and application for our section of Melvaig to become a Dark Skies area. Initial discussions with Dark Sky Discovery partnership and the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh are going well.
We would hope there would be an announcement about the application before September.
Wester Ross is part of Western Europe’s largest area of dark skies. Walking and Wildlife Adventures have applied for Dark Skies Status for our grounds where we can see the Milky Way by eye and the aurora borealis when atmospheric conditions are good.
