Lighthouses For Sale Again?

Ailsa Craig Island Lighthouses In 1999.

We were really lucky in buying these. 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? Text us on 0793 557 2803 with your email address and the word “AILSA” We can show you how it may be possible to buy them.

Can You Keep A Secret?

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

Photograph Courtesy of Ian Cowe (here)

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 dedicated How? & Who? section. As a segue here is a seemingly obscure opening gambit…


Read on for the back-story…

Hamish MacBethPic1

Highland 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. An unusual turn of fate?

For me, the days of trundling around island police stations detecting who had pinched Christmas trees from the local forestry, or finding felons fishing for salmon with dynamite are long gone. But the lengthy tuition and experience in that career has left an indelible appetite for sleuthing. A mixture Sherlock Holmes and Hamish Macbeth. This transfers very well to truffling out lighthouses for sale. Especially the juicy ones that nobody knows about yet (unless you are a regular reader of our pages here). There is a lot more to this, and perhaps we might visit that at a later date. Indeed, if any of our readers would like an additional “Lighthouse Lifestyle” section, as suggested by some of our regulars, please let us know: click here.

Just for now, and to show a little of the methodology that we heartily advocate, along with a good dose of detective work, I ran another test search – via our handy property detective sleuthing work. Surprise, surprise it yielded nice new beaming result –  a secret even the estate agents don’t yet know about. Fact: I am 99% certain that the Rinns of Islay Lighthouse Keepers Houses will be coming up for sale during 2017.

Lighthouse Buildings To BUY – SOUTHERN British Isles

We have plenty of lighthouse buildings that have come up for sale since we went online in July 2012 with this website. However the majority have been at a latitude north of Walney Island (sold) or Douglas on the Isle of Man (available for sale click here ).

This month we have had three different readers ask if we could find a lighthouse building for sale on the southern part of the country or even the south coast. Something ideally like the lighthouse property on Godrevy Island in St Ives Bay as an example:-

We are just yearning to help our readers with some lighthouse buildings in the southern half of the British Isles.
