Isle of Coll – Awarded Dark Sky Community Status

Visit Waternish would like to extend our warmest congratulations to the Isle of Coll who this last weekend were awarded the status of Dark Sky Community. This will have entailed a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve this – it truelly is a dark place! However don’t forget that Waternish have its own Dark Sky Discovery Sites in which to view the heavens – when the weather permits. Having recently viewed some Dark Skies on La Gomera and from Mt Tiede on Tenerife, I am happy to say that we can really rival them for clarity – although the weather is a bit of a down side.
