Lighthouses and Aberdeen Aberdeenshire Lighthouse

- Guide, photos, history and details:

Lighthouse Aberdeenshire The Aberdeenshire coast still boasts some of the most beautiful lighthouses in Scotland. The picturesque Rattray Head Lighthouse which is set within the sea and has its own causeway is the most atmospheric lighthouse in Aberdeenshire. Though they are now all automated and have no permanent lighthouse keepers the lighthouses of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are accessible to look around from the exterior. This includes the Boddam Lighthouse whose photo is above which has a lovely walk all the way around and is used as holiday accommodation. Other Aberdeenshire lighthouses which uses the former lighthouse keepers cottages as holiday accommodation include Todhead Lighthouse near Stonehaven.








The Drummer Boy


The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.


Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.


Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.





Light of Lighthouse Though the Aberdeen Girdleness Lighthouse is located next to a busy road it is possible to view the outside and enjoy a coastal walk. In Fraserburgh visitors to the Kinnaird Head Lighthouse can go inside the buildings and climb to the top of the lighthouse tower with a former lighthouse keeper. There is also a disabled access museum at this Scottish Lighthouse Museum and the Maritime Museum in Aberdeen also looks at the history of Aberdeen lighthouses.
