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.
Finding the best things to see and do on a Orkney Islands day out with your family or friends is easy – simply explore the lighthouse links below, to find the closest lighthouse just hit the “Find Near Me” button or use the search bar to plan your next Orkney Islands activity.
