Dark Skies - Isle of Coll

Contact details

The Island of Coll in the Inner Hebrides has been awarded the status of Dark Sky Community by the International Dark-sky Association, making it one of only two dark sky places in Scotland, and 22nd worldwide.

The designation follows years of work by the local Coll Dark Skies Group who have taken measurements of the darkness of the night sky over Coll, carried out an audit of all outside lights on the island and adjusted or refitted a number of lights that had spoiled the view for stargazers.
