Gigha Motorhome and Campsite has been awarded with the first Dark Sky Friendly Business award, as part of a scheme run by the island’s Dark Skies Gigha charity.
Campsite manager, Anna Lannigan, accepted the award from Dark Skies Gigha committee member Andy York at a presentation in October.
The Isle of Gigha has some of the darkest skies in the country and the new campsite is already attracting visitors looking for a stargazing experience. The award recognises businesses on the island who understand the importance of dark skies and have taken steps to enable visitors to engage with nature through the special experience of stargazing, in turn supporting astro-tourism on the Isle of Gigha.
The five exterior lights on the campsite building have been adapted to significantly reduce glare and also to direct light downwards giving campers a light pollution free environment to enjoy their stay.
