The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses


The coastal town of Fraserburgh on the north coast of Aberdeenshire is home to the excellent Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, where you can see a collection of huge lenses and prisms gathered from decommissioned lighthouses. It also has a display on various members of the famous lighthouse designing Stevenson family, which included the father and grandfather of the famous author, Robert Louis Stevenson. 
 
Highlight of the museum is the tour of Kinnaird Head lighthouse, preserved as it was when the last keeper left in 1991, with its century old equipment still in perfect working order.
