Highlands Astronomical Society

Welcome To Highlands Astronomical Society

Highlands Astronomical Society (HAS) is where amateur astonomers and others with an interest in astronomy share their passion for the stars, planets and all other wonders of the Universe.

There is something for everyone, from talks to observing sessions, suitable for all - from absolute beginners to the more advanced astronomer. We meet monthly in Inverness and have our own observatory near Culloden Battlefield where we view & photograph both the night sky and our Sun.
