Attraction Information

The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses
The award winning museum building contains several galleries containing an incredible nationally recognised collection of glass lenses, lighting technology and social history artefacts covering the lives of the men and families who guarded Scotland's coastline for over two hundred years. There are engaging audio-visual displays and interactive exhibits great for keeping kids interested and involved. For schools and youth groups their Education Resources are fully CFE linked and introduce the world of lighthouses through literacy, numeracy, art and science.
The Museum runs regular family oriented events, special exhibitions and open days, plus The Museum runs tours right to the top of Kinnaird Head Lighthouse. Tours run regularly throughout the day and last about 45 minutes. These are normally at 11am, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
Disabled access is available to the Museum building but not to the lighthouse itself. There are 74 steps to the top of the lighthouse so be sure the little legs can take it before you start, this is not a staircase you want to carry them on!
