We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Lighthouse Cottage. It was warm, cosy, extremely well-equipped, and ideally situated for nipping into the town or down to the shore for a walk. The night views of the sea and ships and the three lighthouses was great....More

About the neighbourhood
The working lighthouse is still used to guide ships at sea. Its rotating beam is lit during the hours of darkness and gives the location a timeless reassuring ambience. The area is one of the best places in Europe to see dolphins. There is plenty of shipping traffic to watch. Aberdeen harbour is one of the UK's busiest and services the North Sea oil and gas installations. Watch out for the daily ferry service to Orkney and Shetland using ships with a very distinctive Viking livery.
