" I like the night... without the dark, we'd never see the stars."

We are delighted to be collaborating with Ian Dow in 2020 to bring our guests an unforgettable stargazing experience. 

Knoydart River Cottage Stargazing 

Stargazing from September

 Explore Knoydart's Night Sky

Due to covid19 we cannot safely share a telescope or binoculars.

 But you can enjoy unaided our spectacular night sky with Ian as your guide.

 While you get wrapped up to head out in to the night you can enjoy a glass of Prosecco or bottle of Knoydart Brewery beer.

Look up at Knoydart's dark skies and see star clusters, nebula, our closest galactic neighbour Andromeda and our own Milky Way as you've never seen it before. And we can promise a lot of shooting stars. 


Enjoy our luxury accommodation on the Knoydart Peninsula, surrounded by wild landscapes and stunning scenery. Each of our spacious, en-suite bedrooms feature a private outdoor decking or balcony area for you to immerse yourself in nature in privacy.


Home baking on arrival and breakfast supplies will included during your stay, freshly baked bread daily. 


Evening meals can be arranged by the River Cottage Restaurant, just ask for our takeout menu.

  Get in touch and we can arrange an experience that you will never forget.
