Aurora Borealis

Aurora Borealis/Northern Lights

This is a natural electrical phenomenon characterised by the appearance of streamers of reddish or greenish lights in the sky.

The best time to see the Northern Lights is between November and January. A clear, dark night is needed, and that’s what may be achieved here at Windhaven.

We are the most Northerly Cafe, Camping and B&B on the UK mainland. So if you’d like to see the wonders of the lights, pop in and spend a night.

A visual is not guaranteed, but worth taking the chance.

Here are some pictures taken by our neighbour Keith Parkes (, he is a magnificent artisan in wood and worth a visit).

These pictures were taken up at Dunnet Head, only three miles away. I hope you enjoy them.
