Lighthouse summary

The Northern Lights Apartments in Aberdeen are a set of fantastic apartments, found in the grounds of the historic Aberdeen Girdleness Lighthouse. There are three cottages to choose from in this stunning location, all set amongst the walled compound that share a courtyard. Although it is now remotely operated, the lighthouse is a 130 ft. tower that still serves as a safety beacon.

These “Visit Scotland” 4 star accredited apartments, have all been recently refurbished and have fully fitted modern kitchens, Wi-Fi, free off-street parking, professional interior designs, with well-equipped facilities. All the cottages come with premium brand bed linen and towels, and premium branded toiletries provided as part of your stay

The three cottages were the original lighthouse keeper’s cottages and were built in 1833. They have many of the original features such as window shutters and brass door hinges. The lighthouse itself, as a building of architectural and historic interest, has a Grade A listing with Historic Scotland.

Lighthouse description

No 2 Lighthouse Cottages Aberdeen 2+1 bedrooms (sleeps 5)

The second apartment is on a single ground floor and is made up of a sitting room, dining kitchen, one double bedroom and a twin room. There is a study room with a sofa bed and a bathroom. There is a weekly clean included in the price. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and wood is also provided

The cottages are set on a headland just south of Aberdeen harbour and they are just a ten-minute drive from the city centre where guests can find a shopping and leisure mall, the railway station, the ferry link, and the harbour. In walking distance is Balnagask public golf links, an 18 and 9 hole golf course that shares the headland with the lighthouse.

Further afield, the surrounding areas form part of the District Wildlife Site and have a dramatic coastline. The cliffs attract a number of birds and it is common to see dolphins swimming out to sea. The mouth of the Aberdeen harbour is known as one of the best places in Europe to see dolphins. There is no shortage of things to do in this beautiful part of Scotland and certainly no shortage of magnificent hikes along a wonderful coastline.
