Winter service set for Museum restaurant

The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, a popular North-east attraction, has announced that they will run their restaurant service throughout the close season.

It is a stark contrast to where the museum was just several months ago, when there were real fears that the attraction itself may not open over the winter months.

Having spent big on a refurbishment to their café this season, which has seen the former kitchen gutted and replaced and, to the relief of sweltering visitors over the summer, opening windows added, business manager Gary Campbell has revealed that the Stephenson Café will continue to be open for service over the winter season.

Such has the popularity of the restaurant grown, the museum now regularly fills its bookings, the restaurant only operating on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights with a bring your own bottle policy.

Speaking to The Fraserburgh Herald this past week, Mr Campbell said: “After an excellent summer and first few months of operation, the museum fully intends to keep the lighthouse restaurant open for business on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the autumn and winter.

“Bookings are very good in the coming weeks, so book early to avoid disappointment,” he added.

The café at the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses also operates seven days a week from 10am to 4pm, presently.
