Kinnaird Head, Castle Terrace, Fraserburgh AB43 9DU, UK
This is not just any lighthouse you’ll be looking at, but Scotland’s first. In 1787, Kinnaird Head Lighthouse started off life as a giant lamp positioned on the roof of the castle. When structural problems began to appear, Robert Stevenson engineered a foundation, walls and a spiral staircase through the heart of the castle, completing construction in 1824. He even preserved the original castle structure – this has to be seen to be believed!
