Visit Caithness in the Scottish Highlands for Holidays in Scotland

Noss Head Lighthouse is located close to the fishing town of Wick in the far north of Scotland and first started service in 1849. In 1987 the light was converted to automatic operation. The former keepers’ cottages and related structures were sold, along with the 39 acres of land. The sole exception being Noss Head Lighthouse Tower which, in 2018 is still owned and operated by the Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB). You can stay at the Lighthouse keepers cottage for a Lighthouse holiday.
