At an elevation of 37 meters Kinnaird Head Castle Lighthouse became operational in December 1787. Constructed by Thomas Smith (1752-1815) for the Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses, its first in Scotland. The lighthouse was built within the walls of the existing 16th-century Kinnaird Castle and was the only occasion that the Board made use of an existing building in constructing a lighthouse. Kinnaird Head is also the control station for the automatic Rattray Head Lighthouse a few miles to the south. Today Kinnaird Head Lighthouse is the home of the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses where you can discover the unique story of the lighthouses around the coastline of Scotland, their engineering feats and the stories of the people who manned them.
