  • A fantastic visit for the family but make sure you have a head for heights. Great lunch at the restaurant.
  • I visited the place on September 11th, 2017. As an enthousiast of the castles, I was interested in Kinnaird Head Castle, and I was disappointed: a small old tower in ugly white paint. I did not visit the Museum of Scottish Lighthouse: too hurry. Ah, in bad Scottish weather, there was a sunbeam: a young Spanish woman, lost in this place.
  • Good display, interesting guide. You also see around a real lighthouse and associated buildings.
  • Interesting but would like to know more about the lifestyles of the keepers and their families.
  • Fascinating story of necessity and ingenuity, underpinned by human determination and heroism.
