You'll Wish You Lived Here, Too
Have you ever seen the Northern Lights dancing across the sky?
Drank an award-winning craft ale fresh from the brewery around a glowing firepit?
Have you climbed to the top of a lighthouse to see eye-to-eye with fast jets on approach?
These are just some of the attractions in Lossiemouth and there are many, many more to be discovered.
Covesea Lighthouse & RAF Heritage centre
Covesea Lighthouse is an iconic landmark. In summer, you can climb to the top for the best view in Lossie (please book in advance).
The cliffs below the lighthouse house giant caves, once home to families of tinkers, and great fun to explore.
Take a walk through Lossiemouth’s military history at the RAF Heritage Centre. There’s free parking at the heritage centre for the lighthouse and beach.

WINDSWEPT BREWING Co.
Learn the secrets behind award-winning craft ale on a tour at Windswept Brewing. The Tap Room is an onsite bar, offering wine, gin, whisky and softies, as well as beer, and there’s often wood-fired pizza at weekends. There’s indoor seating, but most people opt to wrap up warm and sit outside around the fire pit or under the largest outdoor covered seating in Lossiemouth.
Drop in after a long walk or bike ride. As they say at Windswept, it’s best when you’ve earned it.
the northern lights
With our dark skies to the north, Lossiemouth is one of the best places in the UK to see the Northern Lights.
The Aurora Borealis is most likely to be seen in the winter months.
West Beach car park is a popular viewpoint, so if the forecast is good, park up and look north across the water. You may just see a faint green glow, or you might be lucky and see curtains of colour sweeping across the sky.
Keep an eye on social media for alerts. Services such as AuroraWatch UK will post real-time alerts when they are likely to appear.
Lossiemouth is home to one of the largest and busiest RAF bases in the UK and the only remaining fast jet base in Scotland.
Most weekdays you’ll be able to hear and see planes over the town, particularly if you’re walking on West Beach.
Access to the base is restricted to personnel, however, there are several safe spots to view aircraft around the perimeter.
Moray Golf Club is home to two fine golf courses. The Old Course is considered to be one of the finest links courses in Scotland, while the new course is tighter and more technical.
At Covesea, there’s a separate pay and play 9-hole course, pitch and putt and driving range. There’s even a wee crazy golf for the kids!
