Yes you can see the northern lights, we have had a couple of good displays this year so far but it is just down to luck if you get to see them

We are sailing to Orkney a little later this year, probably Stromness. Is it possible to see the Northern lights from the Orkneys? and if so at what time of year?
Thanks in advance

Hi Andy and Lily
Our man in the field Richard Marcinko is visiting the islands on Sunday 15th April. He will be there for a full week and will be visiting as many businesses and services as possible in that time. He is really looking forward to meeting the people on these lovely islands and compiling a great visitor guide for both yachtsmen and general visitors.
