Enjoy a stay in one of the original 1833 Aberdeen lighthouse cottages. This is one of the lighthouse keeper's cottages inside the historic Aberdeen Girdleness Lighthouse compound. Refurbished in 2014.
Lighthouse Cottage 1 is a beautifully furnished, contemporary and comfortable three bedroom property inside the Aberdeen Girdleness Lighthouse compound designed by Robert Stevenson (grandfather of the author RL Stevenson of Treasure Island fame).
It is the 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 lighthouse is listed as a building of Architectural/Historic interest.
The property has been professionally interior designed and is equipped with free WIFI, TV with Sky channels, DVD, wood burning stove, fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher, fridge freezer and premium capsule coffee machine.
The coastal location is superb on a headland south of Aberdeen harbour yet 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 part of the District Wildlife Site. The cliffs attract a wide range of wild birds, bottlenose and white dolphins which are a popular sight swimming up and down the coast. The nearby mouth of Aberdeen harbour is one of the best places in Europe to watch dolphins playing and feeding.
And yet .... Aberdeen city centre with its choice of restaurants, bars, theatres, cinemas, cafes and shopping and Aberdeen railway station (with direct trains to Edinburgh, York and London) are only two miles away.
Balnagask public golf links is in walking distance and shares the headland with the lighthouse. It has 18 and 9 hole courses and pitch and putt.
