We are offering guests the chance to book a bespoke stargazing experience
Suitable for beginners, amateurs and aficionados, astronomer Stephen Mackintosh will share a wealth of knowledge about the night sky during a stargazing presentation in The Torridon Hotel and then take you out on a stargazing excursion in the surrounding highlands. Head back to the hotel for post-excursion Q&As, as well as a complimentary selection of photographs taken by Stephen during your trips out.
The Torridon has some of the darkest skies in Europe
In this blog post, Stephen Mackintosh explained that the wilderness surrounding The Torridon is classified as a ‘Bortle 1 or 2 location’. This means that The Torridon is amongst the darkest locations on earth and we can experience rich views of the Milky Way and thousands of naked eye stars. The Torridon is the perfect place to experience the night sky in all it’s glory.
The stargazing experience starts at £500 for two and includes:
- Three course seasonal menu for two with astronomer Stephen Mackintosh
- Stargazing presentation where you will learn about the stars, skies and what to expect on the excursion
- Excursion to put theory into practice
- All equipment provided
- Available between September – March
