The story behind the image
While in Scotland, we also stopped by in Fraserburgh with its beautiful beach that invites for long refreshing walks. The town is also a working harbour that offers many attractive views. As a sidenote, we were quite surprised to experience difficulties finding a suitable accommodation here. It seems that tourism had not (yet) replaced the traditional economy in this part of Scotland in 2005.
There are some attractions for tourists, though. The most important one is for sure the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, sitting on the northern cliffs of the town. The museum is home to the largest collection of lighthouse equipment and information in the United Kingdom.
Kinnaird Lighthouse is a central piece of the Lighthouse Museum. It was the first lighthouse on the mainland of Scotland, erected 1787 by Thomas Smith and remained in operation until 1991, when it was replaced by an automatic light.
