Dark Skies

Gigha residents and the visitors who come to the island know all about its beautiful landscape - silver beaches and beautiful bays, clear green seas, stunning views and amazing sunsets. But Gigha also has another gem - its beautiful night sky. 77% of the UK population are unable to even see the Milky Way due to light pollution but Gigha's view of our galaxy is unrivalled, for, unlike the majority of the country, Gigha’s night time sky is of a very high quality.

The unique characteristics of Gigha’s night sky should be valued and protected and with that in mind community members are in the process of gaining Dark Skies discovery site recognition.
