Stephen Mackintosh

Stephen Mackintosh is an Outreach Astronomer and Maths and Science educator. Through his business 'Highland Astronomy Tours' he hosts public and private stargazing events throughout the Highlands and further afield.  He leads astronomy outreach for the ’Star Stories’ programme at Abriachan Forest near Loch Ness, and provides regular astronomy guiding for community organisations and hotels such as the Merkinch partnership and Torridon Resort.

He specialises in naked eye stargazing and binocular tours of the night sky, revealing our strong cultural and scientific connections with the heavens. He is particularly inspired by the awesome timescales involved in the evolution of stars and the larger galactic constructs that make up our visible universe, and how humans have slowly come to understand our very fragile place in a vast cosmos.
