Places To Chase Aurora Borealis

Providing the weather is clear there may be a chance to see the Northern Lights around Aberdeenshire.

When there's been sightings of Northern Lights like last night's display we like to keep an eye on the  Aurora Forecast. On a clear night it may be possible to view the Northern Lights from northern areas of the city and Aberdeenshire, where there is no light pollution. Here’s our list of suggestions to go aurora hunting. Good luck finding them!
