Covesea Skerries Lighthouse, originally belonging to the Northern Lighthouse Board , is built on top of a small headland on the south coast of the Moray Firth at Covesea, near Lossiemouth, Moray.
Following a storm in the Moray Firth in November 1826 when 16 vessels were sunk, applications were made for lighthouses at Tarbat Ness, on the opposite coast, and at Covesea Skerries.
In 1846, the Covesea Skerries Lighthouse was completed despite the misgivings of The Commissioners of Northern Light Houses and Trinity House who felt that a lighthouse at Covesea was unwarranted. The original lens was rotated by a clockwork mechanism with gradually descending weights providing the energy. That lens is on display at the Lossiemouth Fisheries and Community Museum.
In 1984, the lighthouse was automated being remotely monitored and controlled at the Northern Lighthouse Board’s offices in Edinburgh.
The light was extinguished on 2 March 2012 and to all intents and purposes, replaced by a North Cardinal navigational lit buoy berthed at the north-eastern extremity of the Halliman Skerries.
