Please do not scale.

The smaller property to the left of the vertical red line is the Relief Keeper’s Cottage – otherwise known as the “Occasional Lighthouse Keeper’s House” (OLK). This modest sized lighthouse building is being sold “as, is”. Offers over £22,500. The first person to make a firm offer of £29,500 is likely to receive a positive reply and end up being the owner.

Noss Head Lighthouse Station – General View

The new owner will have their own personal tastes on internal layout and decor. Whilst recently empty during the sale process – where the previous owners dating back 20 years were selling the compound following a probate – this house has been kept on a care-and-maintenance basis for several months until the current sale completed on 26th May 2017. The new owners of the whole compound with four lighthouse homes on it do not need all of the buildings.

The Relief/Occasional Keeper’s House located at lower left of this picture – the one with the new roof shaded light gray/green.

This small building does have double glazing and an overhauled new roof, both fitted in the last 4 years. However, the interior will need renovating. It is being sold “as is”. Here are some recent interior photographs (taken during May 2017)…

Relief/Occasional Lighthouse Keeper’s Bothy: Bedroom

Unusually, and especially for a small building like this, it has windows on three sides. Indeed, if the appropriate building warrant was obtained, the gable end could have a beautiful picture window fitted and this would provide a marvellous view over the Loch.

Relief/Occasional Lighthouse Keeper’s Bothy: Back Corridor.

Removal of the wall to the right – with appropriate Building Warrants, and subject to civil engineer’s report etc., would provide for a very nice, enlarged lounge room.

This photograph was taken at 11pm at night on 29th May 2017. This is the view, a short walk from your front door. You already have beautiful views from the Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s House to the north and south of your future home/investment property. This lighthouse tower nearby is possibly the icing on the cake. Here is a similar photograph viewpoint taken during the next day…

The Main Lighthouse Tower Is Not For Sale

But this picture is indicative of the general views from all around the lighthouse compound.
