Lighthouse summary

Keepers Cottage West is located at the most westerly point of mainland Britain and is nestled right underneath the majestic Ardnamurchan Lighthouse. Built in 1849 out of granite from the Isle of Mull, the lighthouse was designed by Alan Stevenson, uncle of Robert Louis Stevenson and towers majestically 55 metres above the sea.

Lighthouse description

With a lovely cafe and gift shop (Open easter - Oct) close by and the opportunity to spot minke whales, dolphins and basking sharks in the seas below, Keeper Cottage West provides a spectacular and unique experience for those who like to stay somewhere a little bit out of the ordinary! With breath-taking, panoramic sea views and beautiful sunsets, the location of this cottage is hard to beat. Encompassing entrances to both the lighthouse and the two Keepers Cottages, is a cobbled courtyard. The well-furnished cottage can be enjoyed in every season, on the clear days when panoramic views extend out in every direction and the exhilarating, wild, stormy evenings when the heating ensures a cosy stay. Tickets to enter the tower can be purchased from the cafe on site.(April-Oct).


Please note - The lighthouse has a private water supply which is tested annually. It can be brown in colour but is fit for consumption. If you do not like the idea of this then you will need to bring your own drinking water.
