Star Gazing and Night Skies
The location of Teeny's cottage in the top of Skye looking North is ~10 miles from the nearest street light making it ideal for star gazing and sky watching. During spring and autumn the 'Northern Lights' aurora borealis can often be seen over the minch from the cottage's front door. The pattern of northern lights are reaching the peak of their 12 year cycle in 2011 and 2012 so it is a great time to see them. The box below shows a link provided by Lancaster university providing short terms predicition of Auroral activility in Scotland.
In winter the milky way is especially clear directly overhead and constellations such as Orion are visible over the moor to the south of the cottage. Shooting stars can also be often seen.
