Sell-out attraction signals success for ‘doors open’ day

A tour of Moray’s iconic Covesea Lighthouse arranged as part of ‘doors open’ day in Lossiemouth this weekend has sold out.

The forty places available for the special tour to the top of the landmark attraction were quickly snapped up – although organisers say there is plenty more to do and see around the town.

While the lighthouse tour itself has been booked visitors are more than welcome to tour the grounds and learn more about the fascinating history of the structure – as well as learn about future tours.

The free ‘doors open’ day will allow people to visit a number of attractions in the Moray town including a unique opportunity to visit the home of former UK Prime Minister Ramsay Macdonald, with his granddaughter Iona Keilhorn conducting tours.

Images of Lossiemouth throughout the years will feature at the library while next door in the town hall works from famous Lossiemouth artist David West will be exhibited.

The town’s fishing heritage will be on display at the Fisheries and Community museum and local craft brewing firm Windswept Breweries are conducting tours of their beer-making facility.

In all 14 properties will open their doors for the free event on Saturday, part of a nationwide initiative aimed at encouraging people to learn more about their local heritage and history.
