Dark Sky Discovery Site

Last Month, Balevullin Car Park was recognised as a Milky Way Class, Dark Sky Discovery Site.

This accreditation is highly sought after and held by locations with little light pollution which allow for some magnificent star gazing!

Our neighbouring isle of Coll currently holds an international status of dark sky discovery site. There are many other aspects taken into consideration when trying to gain this level of award such as sky photography, and sky metre readings – this is something that we aspire to.

If you would like to get involved or can offer some assistance with Night Sky Photography then please email: louise@tireetrust.org.uk for more information!

We also have the telescope available at the Trust office for any keen star watchers. You can also follow us on facebook by searching: Tiree Dark Skies.
