Here in Moray we are very lucky to have some areas of truly darks sky and a wonderful flat horizon over the Moray Firth which is ideal for viewing the wonder that is the northern lights.
Viewing the aurora is easy, no equipment is needed just you eyes. Predicting the northern lights is a very different matter though and is not easy at all.

Below is a list of some websites for information and predictions on The Aurora.
