The story behind the image
Finding an accommodation around Peterhead in Scotland posed a challenge for us. No, not a challenge. Make that ‘a problem’. Peterhead is a town with a working harbour, not very spectacular but pretty busy. And all the busy workers apparently occupied all the hotels and B&Bs in town. After some asking around (one might call that an ‘odyssey’) we finally found an accommodation for the night at the Rattray Head Lighthouse B&B.
We did not stay directly at the lighthouse though, which was built in 1895, but still operating as automated lighthouse today, but at the former houses for the lighthouse wards. Back in 2005, the B&B was operated by Rob and Val, who were super friendly, and our room was clean and very quiet. Pure relaxation. We walked along the endless sandy beach, also known as ‘The Shoulder of Scotland’.
Sadly, the property has been sold and is not available as B&B any longer.
