This former lighthouse keeper’s house for rent in autumn 2018 (here) is located 10 minutes drive from Wick Airport (here). There are between 3 and 5 scheduled flights each day from Wick Airport. It is very civilised. The noise of aircraft is not anything like the problem of living under London Heathrow’s flight path! The benefit is that having a modest regional airport nearby to the lighthouses means flight travel to London, Manchester, Edinburgh and beyond to other UK airports and also international  hub airports is managed with relative ease. Noss Head Lighthouses are far from the madding crowd, yet very accessible as a sanctuary away from high paced city life.

The building for rent is to the left of the lighthouse tower in the photograph above. This photograph was taken at 11pm at night during the month of May at Noss Head Lighthouse Station.

 ^  Lounge – or Possibly Bedroom Number 4  ^

This 3 to 4 bedroom former lighthouse keeper’s cottage will be for rent in 2018. It has two reception rooms, so depending upon your needs, it is entirely possible to utilise the current lounge as a 4th bedroom and have the dining room as a lounge/diner. In fact there is sufficient room in the kitchen to have that room fulfill the function of a kitchen/diner.

These are all good sized rooms and more than capable of supporting either a 3 or a 4 bedroom layout depending your holiday requirements.

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 Cottage to the north and south. 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 Rent

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