Scotland’s Outstanding Lighthouses

Scotland’s Outstanding Lighthouses is an initiative developed by the Northern Lighthouse Board. The initiative aims to promote and drive tourism to Scotland’s coastal communities and increase awareness of the role and history of NLB’s unique heritage.

All Scotland’s lighthouses are situated in stunning locations and all are outstanding but for this initiative we are shining the light on publicly accessible lighthouses and visitor centres.

If you’d like to stay at a lighthouse or a lighthouse keeper’s cottage, we list the places you can do just that in this section.
