Showcasing Unst skies through a sky-stop trail, events and exhibitions

Wild Skies Shetland is a new Unst-based charity which aims to showcase the marvels and enormity of the skies, day and night, summer and winter.


The work on the permanent sky trail is underway and it is planned to open in the autumn of 2021.

In the meantime, Wild Skies has a number of exciting upcoming events.

The Sky Trail

We are in the process of developing a Sky Trail in Unst, which it is hoped will have the first few stops open in the autumn of 2021. It will have 12 Sky-stops, each in a notable island location focusing on different aspects of the skies, including links to history, dialect and science. Stay tuned to hear when the Sky Trail is complete!
