Each Varying In Size, With 2 Bedrooms

Starting Guide Price: £79,000.

We have just received a very nice email from the owners of the Rattray Head Lighthouse Compound advising that they are putting their lighthouse buildings up for sale. Originally these were formatted as FIVE lighthouse keepers’ dwellings for the nearby lighthouse [tower not included in sale]. Currently the lighthouse buildings at Rattray Head are being utilised as a bed and breakfast with home attached. The price guide for the WHOLE lighthouse compound is £490,000. But we have a way to help fellow lighthouse dwellers reduce that high entry level to a much more affordable starting level of £79,000 for a 2 bedroom lighthouse keeper’s house.

Sharing our own experience – of purchasing Ailsa Craig Lighthouse & Strathy Lighthouse Compounds, it is often difficult to move a commercial entity of the size, price and nature that the WHOLE Rattray Lighthouse Compound presents. In an effort to manage a successful outcome for all, we are endeavouring to put together a group of friends, colleagues and like minded lighthouse dwelling folk to purchase INDIVIDUAL properties, which the solicitors will distil from the main title. This means that a much larger pool of folk can bid, and at bite-sized purchase levels for single dwellings that are not as high as the figure sought for the whole lighthouse compound. The likely price guides with this initiative are:-

A] One of the THREE Assistant Lighthouse Keepers’ Dwellings starting at £79,000.

B] The Main House: Formerly the Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s House WITH the Depute Lighthouse Keeper’s House currently formatted as ONE 5 Bedroom Dwelling: £249,500.

ALTERNATIVELY:-

C] Subject to planning permission and building works to revert the Main House to it’s former 2 x Semi-Detached format – each at £126,500.
