THE sky above the Black Isle has been lit up with spectacular displays of the Northern Lights in recent weeks.

 

The stunning sight of the Aurora Borealis has had many people reaching for their cameras.

Now locals can find out more about this natural phenomenon at a talk being held by an expert, and hosted by the Culbokie Community Trust tonight.

The multimedia presentation Auroras - science, myths and magic, will be held this Saturday at 7.30pm in Findon Hall, Culbokie.

Dr Kenny Taylor, local writer and naturalist, will give an insight into the natural phenomenon around the world, as well as tips on how to view it from the Black Isle.

The talk will be illustrated with stunning photographs including time-lapse stills taken by local photographer Jamie MacPherson.

The trust is holding a series of events and talks as part of its fundraising campaign to transform land into a village square, with community buildings and amenity land.

The trust’s Glascairn Project aims to build a community hub in Culbokie which will offer a community café, health rooms and outdoor space to provide something for everyone in the community.

The trust says Culbokie has no real centre and it wants to put the heart back into the village.

It estimates that phase one of the project will cost around £1 million and it aims to fund this through grants and donations.

Tickets for the presentation are available from the Culbokie Spar or by emailing event@culbokiect.org.
