Southerness Lighthouse and Beach

 
Home » Attraction » Southerness Lighthouse and Beach

Details

Southerness beach is a vast expanse offering breathtaking views across the Solway Firth towards the Lake District. It is a combination of sand and rocks and at low tide  reveals mud flats and rock pools. A dog friendly beach, Southerness is very popular with families and walkers alike.

Parking and public toilets are available at Southerness Point.

At the western end of the beach stands Southerness lighthouse which was built in 1749. Unusually it is square in shape. Although no longer a working lighthouse it is sometimes open to visit.

At the eastern end of the beach is Powillimount Beach, with its outstanding rock formations, it is worth the half and hour stroll from the lighthouse.
