Description

This Lighthouse Cottage is elegantly comfortable with 2+1 (sleeps 5) bedrooms and newly refurbished. It is in a magnificent coastal setting as part of the historic landmark Aberdeen Girdleness Lighthouse compound. You will stay in an original Lighthouse Keeper's cottage built in 1833 with many period features including working window shutters. Even the brass door hinges are originals and stamped NL (Northern Lighthouse).

The neighbouring working 130 foot high Lighthouse tower is only a few steps away across the shared courtyard. Two other properties are available in the same Lighthouse courtyard and are listed on this website.

The coastal location is outstanding on a headland south of Aberdeen harbour and unmistakably prominent when arriving in Aberdeen by air, train or ferry. Only a ten minute drive to the centre of Aberdeen and also convenient for Altens and Tullos business areas.The surrounding area is a true natural beauty spot with the dramatic coastline forming

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Aberdeen

The working lighthouse is still used to guide ships at sea. Its rotating beam is lit during the hours of darkness and gives the location a timeless reassuring ambience. The area is one of the best places in Europe to see dolphins. There is plenty of shipping traffic to watch. Aberdeen harbour is one of the UK's busiest and services the North Sea oil and gas installations. Watch out for the daily ferry service to Orkney and Shetland using ships with a very distinctive Viking livery.
