Applegate is a perfect place if you enjoy star gazing. Skye enjoys some of the darkest skies in Europe, no light pollution and a chance to lots of constellations. A great website with information about discovering more about the skies above Skye is www.darksky-skye.com here you’ll find information on dark sky discovery sites as well as monthly ‘sky notes’ which are great for letting you know what’s up above you!
As well as enjoying the stars you may well be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights. During 2014 www.glendaleskye.com managed to capture auroras on 82 nights, so you don’t need to head to the frozen north to see the aurora borealis. The Glendale website provides advice for seeing and capturing the northern lights and on Skye often it has to be using a camera.
This picture was taken just in front of Applegate and the aurora is faintly visible along with the stars.
