Seeing the Aurora Borealis in Scotland and the UK.
Three Internet sites that will help you to see displays:
Site gives best predictive information about Solar activity and likely storms affecting the Earth.
Alert service for the UK storms happening from data source at Lancaster University.
Offers Scottish overview of various sites including direct link to Spaceweather European Aurora Oval map, the Crooktree data and useful cloud forecasts.
Interesting article in wheretraveler.com about seeing and photographing Aurora displays:
New Stone Circle on Deeside
NESARS volunteers under the co- direction of Professor Richard Bradley and Amanda Clarke from Reading University investigated a site at Hillhead/Blackhills near Tarland during September 2013.
All indications are it is an unknown Recumbent Stone Circle and not a ring enclosure are previously thought. This has been confirmed by Professor Bradley and makes this the third site in the Tarland area. A cremation pit with dating material was also found in the centre of the circular cairn.
The following photo shows John from Reading clearing the possible base of the missing recumbent with a flanker socket in the foreground.
I am based on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire. In 1986 I began compiling an extensive collection of my photographs when I established my freelance photography business. I was a BAPLA registered photo-library from 1990 - 2010.
News update:
Success with the partial solar eclipse this morning-20th March and this is about the best just after a 95% maximum totality at around 9.40am.
This Aurora photo was taken in
February 2014 and was the best i had seen since 2006. Sadly the most recent on the17th March 2015 was unseen owing to complete cloud cover-can't win them all!
Images from that activity are on Crooktree.com and see the Links Aurora Photography article for useful information and links.

I was delighted to have a couple of my photographs included in a recent Birlinn Books publication The Gathering Stream, including the front cover photo. The book is by James Miller and is the history of the Moray Firth.

I was also involved in another project for Birlinn during 2012, providing photographs for Britain's Last Frontier: A Journey along the Highland Line by Alastair Moffat
The two Aurora Displays below show that displays over Scotland can be seen during all months of the year as they are related to activity on the Sun's surface and are not just a event occurring in Winter on Earth.
The photos below are two summer 2003 Aurora displays with Aberdeen photos below taken at Dyce and the ARI Children's Hospital.

My own online library is now set up at Crooktree.com and I have further images on the Alamy.com site, with some of my Scottish and Aurora collection in addition to the Alamy stock is on the Collections Library and is available for purchase.
