insider’s guide things to do

Top tips for spotting the Northern Lights in the Cairngorms There are few sights as magical and ethereal to behold as the Northern Lights, which is why seeing them is on many people’s bucket lists. But you don’t have to take an expensive, long trip to the Arctic to fulfil this dream; Scotland is actually the same latitude as coveted lookout spots in Norway and Alaska, which means you’re in a with a good chance of seeing them here, especially on the higher grounds in the Cairngorms. But these pesky “Mirrie Dancers” can be unpredictable and ensuring you’re in the right place at the right time is a challenge. Nevertheless, there are some steps you can take to boost your likelihood of seeing these wondrous dancing sky lights:

E It sounds obvious but make sure you’re looking north! The Cairngorm Mountain car park is a perfect, north facing location. “Dava Moor, between Grantown-on-Spey and Inverness, is also a good lookout; the hills aren’t particularly high, but they look north”, says Andy Bateman of Scot Mountain Holidays.

E Get away from man-made light, especially cities and towns, from which

it is highly unlikely you’ll sneak a peek. Even the glare from headlights, if you’re watching from your car, can get in the way of seeing the Northern Lights. One of the best places to go in the Cairngorms is the Glenlivet Estate, which has been awarded Dark Sky status. Its status certifies that it is free from light pollution and obscuring artificial light.

E Learn more about the lights; the better educated you are, the more

likely you are to spot the lights of the Aurora Borealis. Glenlivet Estate runs “Dark Sky” events which are popular with both visitors and locals interested in astronomy. As well as these workshops, there will be other events laid on such as stargazing and telescope sessions with experts, for example with local astronomer and wildlife expert David Newland. Despite his years of experience chasing the Aurora, David remembers vividly the first time he witnessed the phenomenon: “I stood there with my mouth open looking at the sky as it went red and green over my head. Breath-taking.”

E Download an app such as AuroraWatch UK, which monitors geomagnetic activity in realtime, and receive “aurora alerts”, to let you know when there’s a stronger likelihood of visibility in the Cairngorm area. You can also follow @Aurora_Alerts and @aurorawatchuk on Twitter. Be ready to leap into action when you’re tracking alerts as they’re posted in realtime!

E Make it an adventure. Visitors talk about the thrill of chasing the lights and the delicious anticipation when you settle in your spot, with hot chocolate flask and blanket at the ready. If you make the trip about more than the lights - about the wild experience of being out in the dark, with only the wildlife for company – then the disappointment, if you have to endure it, is much easier to bear.

in blackout conditions, so you’ll need it. Don’t forget your camera, either, and remember you’ll need a longer exposure time to capture the lights in their full glory. Local lights enthusiast Nancy Chambers loves going to “watery venues” because of the reflection from the water, which looks stunning, especially in photos. She recommends the banks of the River Spey, Milton Loch and Loch Garten. “The camera will often see more than the eye,” she says. “Often the lights will look just like a film of mist to the naked eye, but with the camera you get some spectacular results as you are exposing for around 20-30 seconds.”

Good advice to heed - after all, you don’t want to go to all this trouble and not be able to boast about it! Lastly, if you don’t see them, don’t be too disheartened. Even if you don’t manage to spot the Northern Lights, the chances are you will witness some dramatic stunning sunrises and sunsets, which are characteristic of the area, while you’re here.
