Àite Cruinnichidh is a clear sky area perfect for an Astro break in the Highlands

There is no street lighting near to the hostel and when it is clear, the views of the night sky are magnificent .

No equipment is necessary to see many of the constellations, but with a pair of powerful binoculars or a telescope you will see more.

We have a large garden for good clear viewing and plenty of room to set up telescopes / cameras.


During the winter we have shorter days and crisp night skies.
