  • Lovely place to visit, learn about the lighthouse and how they were manned and worked. Great cafe with lovely food too. 
  • The museum was interesting and the trip round the lighthouse was really entertaining. There was lots about the lights but nothing about how lighthouses were built. 
  • Great small Museum of Scottish lighthouses, with a guide (speaks English only) very prepared and thorough on every aspect of life that you did. With the guided tour up to the lens and is also operated the original mechanism for operation. You end up with a ride on the coping (ventosissimo). Nice also the Museum. If you plan to eat at the bar which is located inside the Museum instead, don't expect much: we ate really badly.

  • The guides tour is the best. You get to climb a lighthouse and see how the machinery works
  • Great view great way to hear the history of the town. Good food too
  • What a great place. You get a guided tour of the fist lighthouse in Scotland. It is built in a castle! The museum has all sorts of fascinating stuff about lighthouses and the life of the keepers. There is a super cafe with magnificent views over the sea, yesterday 5 killer whale passed by. While you are there visit Fraserburgh Heritage Centre and walk round Fraserburgh harbour one of the biggest fishing ports in Europe
  • Great Museum. Saw also the lighthouse itself from the inside. Simply class. I also enjoyed the leadership.

  • If you're not particularly interested in lighthouse, you will be bored here quickly. Nice idea, but could be more exciting design.
