Special winter rates at Noss Head Lighthouse from £99 per week.

Please check room availability first. Demand is high.

We thoroughly recommend you have a holiday in a lighthouse building for a couple of weeks in the summer, AND a couple of weeks in the winter to see if you like this style of life and it likes you…

Winter Time at Noss Head Lighthouse Station.

Some days are glorious sunshine complimenting the sea views (above).

Winter Time at Noss Head Lighthouse Station.

Other days have a fair dusting of snow. The wee Loch Mor at Noss Head is frozen over. Though not hard enough to walk across to the miniature Treasure Island on the loch – an homage to the lighthouse engineer Alan Stevenson uncle of Robert Louis Stevenson. The latter being that famous author, born in 1850, a year after Noss Lighthouse Station was created and lit in 1849 by his uncle. We cannot guarantee that the young Robert Louis was influenced by the work of his famous uncle, but you never quite know with these things where inspiration springs eternal.

George, next time you are up at Noss Head Lighthouses, please pop in for a cup of tea. The nights can be guy cold when waiting for that perfect picture shot.

None too shabby a display for the supposedly dark nights in mid winter.

Of course, those who live here and love the place absolutely adore the long light days of summer where the far north gets an extra 2 hours each day more daylight than London and the south. Though, conversely, winter times can be dark, but the Aurora Beaurealis is well worth staying a for a short holiday the far north.

As for spending a week or two on a holiday visit in the winter as well as the summer BEFORE you consider buying…

Far better you discover whether you like it or not with a holiday first, than have buyers regret after you’ve bought a lighthouse building!

We are now growing our lighthouses for RENT section on this website. We will be sending out updates to our subscribers for each newly featured lighthouse for rent: click here . Or telephone/text on: 0793 557 2803.

Noss Head Lighthouses – Better to walk the walk than just talk the talk

For many years we have written about living in a lighthouse building. All very well to narrate and talk about this. We’ve been lucky enough to have spent almost 30 years in, on or by these wonderfully iconic structures – starting with Davaar Island Lighthouse back in 1985…

Birthplace of our sister publication: Unique Property Bulletin.

However, rather than just write and wax lyrical, in early 2017 we’d had many emails and letters asking what it is actually like to live in this style of building. Plus the websites have been growing at such a rate we now need to employ admin + editorial + IT staff and need an office for them to work from.

So what better way to complete the circle of writing and illustrating how to buy a lighthouse, than to actually purchase another ourselves and share it.

Whitby Lighthouse Foghorn Station For Sale

The old foghorns are now decommissioned, so no big noises!

Whitby Lighthouse Foghorn Homes For Sale

Fine old photograph….

Whitby Lighthouse Foghorn Homes For Sale

This Foghorn Station was originally built in 1858 as a fully functional lighthouse – and a second light just along the coast from the main tower here. Latterly this building was turned into a foghorn station. Then in 1992 it was decommissioned and sold by Trinity House to private owners.

The Foghorn Station, Hawsker, Whitby, YO22 4JY

The old foghorn building has owner’s accommodation within it; plus a holiday cottage element with a very useful income from that part of the property.

Whitby Foghorn Buildings are located on the east coast, about halfway up the spine of the UK.

Little Ross Island Lighthouse Compound

Guide: £325,000 – Now Sold

Little Ross Island Lighthouse Compound

Little Ross Island and it’s various lighthouse (and farm/barn) buildings, may be “under offer”, but it is still worthwhile keeping an eye on the current selling progress – in case the place comes back up for sale. Over the past three decades, we have seen, first hand the fact that several lighthouse buildings have come back after the first sale effort falls through. Our very own HQ for this website at Noss Head Lighthouse Station was one such second-time-around sale/purchase.

Little Ross Island Lighthouses – Tower Not Included

Studying this pretty amazing island lighthouse station we are struck with how similar the buildings are, plus the tower and quarterdeck to our new website base in the far north at Noss Head. Even the interior layout of the main building is remarkably similar…

This is a second building for rent at Noss Head Lighthouse Station and detached from Tower House available elsewhere on this website. KEEPER’S COTTAGE is separate from the Tower House.


Good Airport Connection Links To London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Belfast, etc.

Please note, this website and it’s sister publication: Unique Property Bulletin will be permanently housed in the neighbouring building: The Old Engine House, Noss Head Lighthouse Station, Wick, Caithness, KW1 4QT.

The Old Engine House, Noss Head Lighthouse Station

The Old Engine House is not for sale – just introducing our readers to the new home for this website. This is where we help you. Our new unique property HQ. This diminutive building might contain details of your new home!

In 2016, after 25 years of our parent publication, Unique Property Bulletin (here) running as a voluntary, not-for-profit entity helping friends find their ultimate dream home, it is now apparent we needed to employ staff. The tipping point was when we went from a paper-based newsletter, to an online version in 2011.

Putting our two main publications on the internet became an accidental success.

Our readership for the paper format publication went gently from 985 to 3,650 between 1992 and 1997.

Unique Property Bulletin: Original Format

The Lighthouses For Sale of Rent website was born from this.

However, the turbo-charged numbers, and we still struggle to believe these, have seen our Lighthouses For Sale website regularly exceed 40,000 and the sister journal at Unique Property Bulletin inexorably increase to the current level of 70,000 readers. Sometimes we get an awesome boost when an item goes a little bit viral…

Reader Numbers Went A Bit Viral. This Produced 2,000 Email Enquiries!

Just one of the reasons we need to employ staff and buy an office.

186,399 people looked at that single Facebook light keepers house for sale feature. Apparently the 185 folk who “shared” it on their Facebook pages made the thing go that wee bit viral. Were it not for our more savvy IT volunteers showing us this screenshot – we would find 186,399 number hard to believe. Though some days 2am in the morning getting through hundreds of daily inbound emails, the impact of these numbers is understandable.

All in all, whether 985 readers or 186,399 visitors to our web pages, our job at  this Lighthouses For Sale or Rent website and our parent publication, Unique Property Bulletin is simple…

We are here to help you find and have fun with a unique property.

The next stage, at the Old Engine House is the most exciting in what has been a pretty amazing 25 year journey. Please join us. We would love to get you into some unusual property mischief!

P.S. The Facebook screenshot illustrated above was a success. The Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage sold – very quickly. A very nice couple from Edinburgh bought it, and  will be sharing the property for those readers who would like to rent it for holidays: click here.

The Old Engine House, Noss Head Lighthouse Station

The detached building to the lower left of the photograph is this website’s new home. Whilst the building to the lower right is the Principal Keeper’s House. That could be your new holiday destination.

Not for sale – just introducing our readers to the home of where this website is prepared and published!

Approximately one year before this incredibly rare lighthouse TOWER came up for sale, our property sleuths managed to alert and help this website’s readers have vital advance notice the tower might be placed on the open market. Having those extra months to prepare your finances and due diligence can mean the difference between you securing your dream beacon building and losing it.

Ailsa Craig Island Lighthouses In 1999.

We were really lucky in buying these Ailsa Craig Lighthouse buildings. Surely if our small group of friends can have this sort of adventure, you can too?

After a great deal of enjoyment and pleasure, we eventually sold the Ailsa Craig Island lighthouses to a gentleman about 16 years ago. He hasn’t done much with the picturesque properties since then. However to those who listen astutely, he has advised he would sell the Ailsa Craig Lighthouses. Curious? Keep an eye on this website and consider signing up for our email alert service…

Even The Estate Agents Don’t Know About This Lighthouse Building Sale Yet!

We have been asked by readers for some additional lifestyle content. Lighthouses are handsome and noble buildings with dramatic locations, but the constructive comments and inbound emails we have received are correct. The visually vertical vernacular throughout this website can be a little monolithic at times. So this current edition we are giving a little of the back-end detail. The odd human being appears in the occasional photograph to complement the lighthouse buildings and towers. Plus some of the back story for various aspects of what appears on this website. To start the ball rolling we are answering a couple of the more regular mailbag questions. Better still, to help old and new readers alike, we now have a special…

Read on for the back-story…Hamish MacBethPic1Highland Policeman Hamish Macbeth Portrayed By Actor Robert Carlyle

Photo Attribution: BBC 

The light hearted rural police drama featured adventures of the eponymous, eccentric character in uniform, inhabited brilliantly by Robert Carlyle. The BBC series was must-watch television on a Sunday night in the 1990’s.

But here’s the thing. In real life there are actual Hamish Macbeths. You are reading the words of one right here and now. Just exactly as I am tapping them out on the old keyboard for you. Curiously, it is an obscure fact that thanks to a Teuchter version of the Old Bill – and a lot of training at police college, this website has been created. If it were not for a real life Hamish Macbeth, then Lighthouses For Sale or Rent would not be here.
