List of Minor Lighthouses and Lights - Scotland

We created a listing of Featured List of lighthouses - Scotland and this listing contains other lighthouses and lights we have identified that were not included in the featured list. This list may grow but we don't intend to add every single light. There are many other websites and services that provide this, see Lighthouses - Further Information.

We should just say that the term minor is not derogatory or mean that they have less purpose, but just that from a photography and tourism perspective they are perhaps less interesting than others. Scotland has so many fine lighthouses, that we have perhaps left some for this list that elsewhere would have made the featured list.

Where the name in the first column is hyperlinked this links to one of our location pages with more information and over time more of these will be added, we would be delighted if some of you would like to also produce location pages.

Marinas is a website that contains many great aerial images of coastal features, including lighthouses and lights, and we have, where we can identify, added a direct link into their website where you can see several images of the lighthouse, and a map identifying its position. Other images can often be found in Geograph.
