Loved the buildings especially the Egyptian style lighthouse keeper's cottages. Unfortunately we won't be here on a Saturday as that is the day the lighthouse is open to the public. Would have loved to climb to the top. Perhaps next time.

Recommend a visit to this light house, great views looking over the sea, and Lossiemouth. Lovely at night as it is lit with ever changing coloured lights.

We've visited Covesea Lighthouse twice now, but just realised we've not yet reviewed for Tripadvisor! What a stunning building to visit - it's not often that visitors can enter and climb to the top of one of Britain's lighthouses, and it's certainly worth the climb...More
