Dark Skies and Storm Nights
The Cabrach is one of the top thirty most remote zones in Scotland. It occupies an area of ten miles wide by eight miles long consisting of wild mountainous terrain and spectacular scenery. It is an area of great natural beauty with unspoilt views over mountains and skies. The Cabrach is nominated by Sigma as a Dark Sky Site with Milky Way status.
This evening family event will immerse you in a Dark Sky experience in the Cabrach. After a warming hot drink in the restored old Smiddy, our Dark Sky expert, Lydia, will guide us along the Discovery Trail to the nature hide where we will star gaze and learn about the night sky above. Using night equipment, The Dorenell Ranger Service will help us to identify nocturnal life on the trails before heading back to the Smiddy for a warm by the firepit.
