Dark Sky Sites

These are some of the best sites for observing the night sky in Lewis and Harris.
The compass points in the notes indicate the directions in which you can see low down near to the horizon at these sites.
Nearby hills do block the near-horizon views in Uig and Harris and other factors included were light pollution from Stornoway effecting viewing from the sites.
Most of these sites have a provision for parking for a small number of vehicles but few have toilet facilities.
