Light pollution at Rubha Rèidh
Light pollution at Rubha Rčidh
The skies in this location are very dark with no sizeable towns nearby. Unfortunately for any potential astronomers there's the slight problem of the light from the lighthouse.

Careful inspection of this image shows the angular coverage of the beams from the light. A dark section of sky can be observed to the right of the image where a baffle prevents the light travelling inland, and in particular obscures the light from the more critical sections of the road approaching the lighthouse. The baffle can be observed in the image NG7391 : Rubha Rèidh Lighthouse at night.
