Aberdeen Lighthouse Cottages are the perfect place to relax, be next to the sea, view dolphins and yet be only 10 minutes from Aberdeen city centre.
Cottage 1 has three bedrooms (sleeps 6) and is one of the original lighthousekeepers' cottages.
It has been professionally interior designed and is very comfortable with a 4* Visit Scotland grading. The cosy sitting room has a woodburning stove (fuel provided) for those days and evenings when the wind and North Sea are livelier than usual.

The space

The cottage location is majestic, on a headland just 2 miles from Aberdeen city centre. It was built in 1833 at the same time as the lighthouse and retains a number of period features from when it was used as accommodation for the lighthouse keeper and his family.
It is in one of the best places in Europe to see dolphins being at the mouth of Aberdeen harbour and the River Dee.
There is a golf course adjacent to the property which is open to the public. Sets of clubs can be hired there.

Other things to note

Aberdeen is a city that looks and feels quite different. Not just on a summer’s evening, when it is daylight at 11pm. Not just because it is lined with classic granite buildings that help make this “one of the most architecturally distinctive cities in Europe”.
But mainly because this isn’t just a city by the sea, it’s a city of the sea. A city where ships dock right up against the city-centre streets. Where urban dolphins leap at the harbour mouth. Where locals paddle-board and surf off the city beach. And golden sands stretch for miles – towards vast dunes to the north and high cliffs to the south. It’s a city of rivers too, where the Dee and the Don meet the sea, bringing crystal clear waters from the Cairngorm mountains.
This is a city with not one but two Old Towns: Old Aberdeen, with its cobbled streets, mature trees and 15th century fortified cathedral – where Aberdeen’s first University was founded in 1495. And then there’s Footdee – known locally as Fittie – a quirky fishing quarter at the water’s edge, with squares of tiny cottages, flower-filled gardens and brightly painted outhouses, their eccentric decorations drawing on the city’s seafaring soul.
Aberdeen is a cosmopolitan and connected place. Up to now, it’s a city that’s been mostly off the tourist map. Which all adds up to a different sort of city altogether.

We enjoyed our stay at the light house. The house was spacious and clean. The linens were lovely and the kitchen well stocked. The view of the harbor was really fantastic. We were in town with our three small children and Jermey and Kathryn were helpful and accommodating. The wooden black out shutters in all the rooms were key in getting over our jet lag. While the location was remote, it was fast and easy to get to the center of the city.
