Kinnaird Head Lighthouse and Museum

Kinnaird Head Lighthouse was the very first lighthouse on mainland Scotland and Kinnaird Head now has two lighthouses:

  • The first lighthouse was built in 1787 within the existing 16th-century castle tower.
  • In 1824 a new stone tower was constructed within the castle.
  • The current is a fibreglass automated light that stands beside the original.

 

The original lighthouse is now The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses and has guided tours with displays that tell the story of the Northern Lighthouse Board, the engineers who built the lights and the keepers who looked after them.
