Lighthouses

We currently operate and maintain 206 lighthouses across Scotland and the Isle of Man. Our lighthouses are situated in some of the most remote and spectacular locations and have guided the mariner safely through Scottish and Manx waters for over two centuries.

Not all our lights are listed here. However, our aim is to keep updating this section so that we eventually have a comprehensive list of all lighthouses managed and maintained by us.
