Event description
Stargazing and Storytelling on the Winter Solstice at Abriachan Forest.

About this Event

Join us up at Abriachan Forest (Dark Sky Discovery site) for a Solstice and Yuletide special of stargazing and storytelling with special guest storyteller and best selling author John D. Burns.

John will transport you into the wilderness with tales from wild places. Hear about the Mouse that Wanted to Jump. Learn how Benny freed the hills and visit the Yukon with Robert Service (www.johndburns.com).

In addition to our storyteller we'll be out under the stars with local astronomer Stephen Mackintosh for dark of the Moon binocular stargazing. Or if sky conditions are poor we'll instead head indoors for a talk on the astronomy of ancient monuments.

Plus mince pies and mulled beverage to warm your cockles. All ages welcome.
