The Corran Lighthouse is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful lighthouses on Scotland’s West Coast. And even though it doesn’t have a fog horn anymore, it is still working properly and is operated by the Northern Lighthouse Board.
As of the moment, the lighthouse’s original keeper’s cottage has been turned into a lodge that offers self-catering accommodations. It has five bedrooms, a lounge, and a kitchen as well as a private walled garden and access to the beach, making it the perfect holiday destination for families or a group of friends.
And since it is located right at the gateway to the majestic Ardnamurchan Peninsula, it has amazing views of the sparkling waters of the Loch Linnhe, the majestic mountains of Glencoe, and the world-renowned Ben Nevis.
The Corran Lighthouse is built in 1860 by Thomas and David Stevenson – the father and uncle of Robert Louis Stevenson, the famous novelist and poet. It is situated on the shores of a tidal sea loch and is only a few meters away from the water.
The lodge, which is basically on what used to be the keeper’s cottage, provides cozy and luxurious accommodations. It has a spacious living room with a wood-burning stove and four comfortable sofas; a kitchen with a large range of appliances such as a four-ring oil Aga, an electric cooker and an oven; a charming dining room and a pleasant little reading room; a utility room that houses a refrigerator, a washing machine, and a tumble dryer; and a play area for children that has bean bags, a television set, and a DVD player.
In addition to those, there are also five bedrooms that can sleep ten people in the said lodge: two downstairs and three upstairs. All of them have en-suite bathrooms and hot and cold showers – and one even having a bath tub. Also, they all have twin beds that can be arranged to become a bigger bed, except for one bedroom on the ground floor which has a double-sized bed.
Last but not the least, the Corran Lighthouse Lodge also has its own private garden with an elevated deck, summer patio furniture, a barbeque pit, and a grassy area for outdoor games.
