Covesea Lighthouse & Royal Navy and Royal Air Force Heritage Centre

24 September 2022

Moray Doors Open Day

In Person

The Alan Stevenson Covesea Skerries Lighthouse was completed in 1846 and is situated on the outskirts of Lossiemouth on the Moray Firth Coast. Voted as one of the most breathtaking coasts in the world by National Geographic Traveller magazine survey.  The lighthouse is now owned by the Lossiemouth local community and was opened to the general public as a visitor attraction in 2013. The views along both sides of the Moray Firth are wondrous and, when nature allows, there is much to be seen in the way of wild animals, birds and plants. The neighbouring RAF base is best viewed from the top of the lighthouse. Military aircraft flights, during the week, are unique in Scotland for the enthusiast or the casual visitor alike.

The Heritage Centre which shows the armed forces history of the area and includes a flight simulator welcomes all visitors and there is no requirement for advance booking.
