House Site - The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) over the House Site

When people talk about seeing the Northern Lights (the Aurora Borealis) they tend to mean travelling to Norway, Iceland or Finland to see them.


You can actually see the Northern Lights over the Outer Hebrides when atmospheric conditions allow.The Northern Lights don’t appear on set dates each year. The Aurora are only visible in dark skies so the best time of year to see the Northern Lights is the autumn and winter months. They are not visible in the summer because of the long and light summer nights in the Hebrides.
