"Museum of Lighthouses" Fraserburgh - Daytrip Tip by ringleader

Fraserburgh - Daytrip, Aberdeen: 6 reviews and 5 photos

Tells the story of the Stevenson family, lighthouse engineers. This is not polished row of exhibits, it?s a real-life working lighthouse turned inside out to accommodate visitors, and to show them exactly how a lighthouse works. Think of all the things a lighthouse engineer could collect, and you just may find it here! You can climb to the top or just observe the mechanics that make a lighthouse work.
