Rua Reidh Lighthouse - A blink of light - (explored), originally uploaded by Michael~Ashley (Catching up).
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 locations on the north-west coast of Scotland, with stunning views across the Minch to the Isle of Skye, the Shiant Isles and the Outer Hebrides.
It’s still a working lighthouse, but the original Lighthouse Keepers' Quarters are now privately owned and run as guest accommodation. We welcome our guests as we would our own family and friends – in a relaxed, sociable atmosphere where you can make yourself at home. You will have the companionship of other guests from around the world in our comfortable lounge and conservatory, and we invite our guests to join us for a home cooked supper in a friendly dinner party setting every evening.
We're at the end of a single track private road, three miles from the nearest house - you won't hear any traffic noise here, just the cries of the seabirds and the sound of the waves. If you love remote places, walking, wildlife, peace and solitude, it's an unforgettable, unique and unusual place to stay.
