Have you ever dreamed of staying at a lighthouse?

Built in 1912 by David A Stevenson, Rua Reidh Lighthouse, near Gairloch, stands at the entrance to Loch Ewe, at one of the most dramatic and remote locations on the north-west coast of Scotland, with breath-taking views across the Minch to the Isle of Skye, the Shiant Isles and the Outer Hebrides.
The guest accommodation at our unique home will appeal to nature lovers who wish to spend a few days relaxing and appreciating the remoteness, the peace and tranquility, the walking opportunities and the abundant wildlife of this stunning location.

Our gloriously remote and isolated historic Grade B listed building is at the end of a three-mile private access track, with the only human habitation visible being a few wee houses way over on the Isle of Skye or the distant lights of the Outer Hebrides on a clear night.

We have a choice of guest rooms, all with sea views, available on a bed and breakfast basis with optional evening meal. The west end of the building, the First Officer’s Quarters, is available to let as a self-catering apartment.

With no mobile phone signal or wi-fi, an erratic television picture, and the nearest shop a good half-hour drive away, you have a unique opportunity to leave the trappings of the busy modern world behind and get away from it all at the ‘edge of the world’.

The wildlife around the lighthouse is phenomenal, with whales, dolphins, basking sharks, otters, seals, sea eagles and thousands of seabirds all regularly seen. There are blissful walking opportunities from the lighthouse along spectacular cliffs and deserted beaches. In addition there is the opportunity to see the Northern Lights in our autumn, winter and spring dark skies.

We look forward to welcoming you to this very special place.
