For Sale – Former Lighthouse Keeper’s House
Please Note: The lighthouse building for sale is ONE of the former lighthouse keepers’ cottages. The lighthouse tower is NOT for sale at this time.
The current update at Girdleness Lighthouse Compound is that one of the former lighthouse keeper’s dwellings has been placed for sale. The proximity to Aberdeen and one of the most economically “interesting” areas of the U.K., in terms of oil industry, related employment and prosperity means that prices hereabouts are at a generally higher level than elsewhere. This is a very nice property, and situated in an area that has many facilities that you might expect from urban life – in the form of the ciity of Aberdeen – whilst retaining the wonders of lighthouse living.
Originally one of the lighthouse keepers’ cottages for the Girdleness Lighthouse, this delightful historic cottage steeped in history, retains many period features from the original built structure.

The historic lighthouse was designed by Robert Stevenson, grandfather of the writer, and built in 1833 and was manned until 1991 when it was automated but still remains a navigation aid for the ships entering Aberdeen Harbour. The lighthouse was home to the famous “Torry Coo” Foghorn which was decommissioned in the late eighties and was recently sold [The Foghorn was guided at £5,000]. The dramatic coast line is rich in natural beauty a delight to the keen walker and a haven for wildlife, with oystercatchers, heron, curlew and gulls, and on a clear day Bottlenose and White beaked dolphins and porpoises can be seen travelling up and down the shore.
