The Torridon has launched a dazzling stargazing experience, offering guests the opportunity to explore the night sky.
The wilderness surrounding The Torridon is classified as a ‘Bortle 1 or 2 location’. This means that The Torridon is amongst the clearest 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, far from anywhere and in a perfect hideaway location.
Available between Late September – March due to the light availability, the package is open to those staying at the resort and includes:
- Three course seasonal menu for two with astronomer Stephen Mackintosh
- Stargazing lecture where you will learn about the stars, skies and what to expect on the excursion
- Excursion to put theory into practice
- All equipment provided
Suitable for beginners, amateurs and aficionados, astronomer Stephen Mackintosh will share a wealth of knowledge about the night sky during a stargazing lecture in The Torridon 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.
Price from £1070 staying in a Classic bedroom inclusive of bed and breakfast per room for 2 nights and the above stargazing package on one evening. Other rooms are available
