In Summer 2014 the former lighthouse keepers’ accommodation at Scurdie Ness, Montrose, Angus came up for sale. This included the main building, plus a detached Bothy.

The main house, formerly the lighthouse keepers dwellings are capable of being formatted into ONE large household or two smaller flatted dwellings.

Ideal for someone wishing to work from home and augment their “telecommuting” income from this remote lighthouse station by letting out the neighbouring flatted dwelling.

To help our readers visualise what might be possible if the current owners wish to sell with our (free) help, here are the floor plans that were included within the 2014 sales brochure…

General Description (Archived From 2014) ~

Scurdie Ness Lighthouse was built in the late 1860s after the seafaring community of Ferryden petitioned the Commissioner of Northern Lighthouses in 1867 to establish a light on Montrose Point. There was no lighthouse between the Bell Rock and Girdle Ness (Aberdeen). The treacherous rocky coastline had been the scene of numerous shipwrecks and a remedy to this was required. This came in the form of a new lighthouse tower and lighthouse keepers’ accommodation at Scurdie Ness, Montrose, Angus. The automation of the lighthouse tower [now remotely controlled by the Northern Lighthouse Board from their HQ in Edinburgh] meant the gradual retirement of the lighthouse keepers. Subsequently the surplus lighthouse keeper accommodation has been sold off when time has progressed and the buildings have become vacant.

The lighthouse was built by David and Thomas Stevenson. The light was lit for the first time at 6 o’clock on the evening of 1st March 1870 amidst cheers from the crowds gathered on the links and the sands. Scurdie Ness was converted to automatic operation in 1987.

The Lighthouse Keeper’s House has a unique setting, standing in splendid isolation on the North Sea coast while at the same time having the benefit of local amenities nearby in Montrose. Originally constructed around 1870 as two dwellings, one for each of the two keepers, the house is built of stone and brick under a slate roof.

Current Layout ~

Accommodation: The ground floor of the house has two reception rooms, a shower room, a study or fifth bedroom and a kitchen. The current owners have built a two storey, south-east facing conservatory which is accessed from the kitchen and from the master bedroom.

A spacious stairwell gives access to the first floor which has a similar layout to the ground floor and provides four double bedrooms and a bathroom. The upper conservatory opens off the master bedroom and on a sunny day provides a warm place to sit and admire the ever changing views out to sea. On stormy days it is a wonderful vantage point to observe the power of the sea.

Within the walls of the lighthouse complex tarred areas provide parking space and give access to various outbuildings which include two single garages and one double garage. There is also a small building which may have been a pigsty and is now used as a store. A timber greenhouse adjoins a wall of the house.

A timber chalet with two main rooms, a small study, wc and studio provides a useful artist’s studio. It is double glazed and has electricity and water and windows overlooking the sea.
