Find Nearest Lighthouses in Orkney Islands

Lighthouses may now be automated but they still provide a critically important service to shipping. Our Lighthouse category brings all Coast Radar’s Orkney Islands listings related to lighthouses together.

If you think about it, lighthouses were created to warn shipping travelling to ports of reefs and promontories. Lighthouses are part of our heritage and many are protected listed buildings in some of the most spectacular coastlines. Visiting a lighthouse takes you to some of the most beautiful and wild parts of the UK.
