Kinnaird Head Castle Lighthouse And Museum of Scottish Lighthouses

Fine 16th century castle altered in 1787 to take the first lighthouse built by the Commissioners of the Northern Lighthouses

Kinnaird Head Castle Lighthouse And Museum of Scottish Lighthouses

Built for the Fraser family, this fine 16th century castle was altered in 1787 to take the first lighthouse built by the Commissioners of the Northern Lighthouses.

It is still in working order but has now been replaced by a small unmanned light nearby. The lighthouse remains much as it was left by the last lighthouse crew and is managed by the Kinnaird Head Trust.

Highlights

  • The location – stand beside the lantern and stare out at the stormy North Sea.
  • Stevenson’s spiral stair – a good climb.
  • The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses – a short walk from the lighthouse will reveal the secrets of Scottish lighthouses.

Location

Region – North and Grampian
