Remote Nairn?

It's nice to see Nairn getting a mention in a Guardian article that informs readers of where to go to see the Northern Lights but are we remote?
' I haven't seen the northern lights for a while, but the further north you go the better, so head to the remote regions of the Highlands and Islands, particularly the north-east, such as Nairn...'
Full article here on the Guardian, Insiders' guide to the northern lights (scroll half-way down the page for the Scottish information)

Im sorry yes we are remote! 120 miles of the A9 dictates that. This has a remarkable effect on the culture of the area and peoples expectaions and aspirations who live and work here. As a incomer this is one of the things that attracted me to Nairn.

Nairn is a large town by Highland standards but head fifteen miles out the Glenferness road and you soon realise how remote we are!

Yes, we sometimes see the Northern Lights from Nairn but I think the guy who made the comment about the further North you go the better really needs to define his idea of remote!
