The Milky Way from Kilbride

If you've ever been to Skye, no doubt you'll have noticed how incredibly dark it is at night. There really isn't a hint of light pollution.


I've been amazed at the stars in places like the Lakes where there's no cities near by but this was just completely something different. You could see the milky way with the naked eye and barely see your hand in front of your face.


Did make driving at night tough though....


Oh, this was taken from the hotel garden, would have been rude not to right?
