Spectacular Auroras

Aurora Borealis on the Isle of Lewis

Aurora Borealis on the Isle of Lewis

Winter is one of the best seasons to witness an aurora. As the nights need to be cold and the sky clear of clouds, with limited light pollution the Outer Hebrides is the perfect location to see the sky glow with colour. We have already been lucky enough to view the sky light up with colour this November.

If seeing an aurora is on your bucket list and you are planning a 2018 trip to the Outer Hebrides we recommend you come early in the season as this is the your best chance to catch a glimpse of an aurora.
