Kinnaird Head

Kinnaird Head (from Scottish Gaelic: An Ceann Àrd meaning the "high headland") is a headland or promontory projecting out into the North Sea from the east coast of Scotland. The headland lies within the town of Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, at grid reference NJ999676.

Kinnaird Head is of particular historical significance as it is the site of the first lighthouse in Scotland to be lit by the Commissioners of Northern Lights. The light was designed by Thomas Smith, built in 1787 and is still standing and in use to this day. In 1929 Kinnaird Head was also home to the first Radio Beacon in Scotland.

Kinnaird Castle and lighthouse

The Kinnaird Castle (one of The Nine Castles of Knuckle), was built in 1570 by Sir Alexander Fraser, 8th laird of Philorth and sold to the Trustees of the Northern lights in 1787, who turned it into a lighthouse. Today it is home to the "Museum of Scottish Lighthouses" and managed by the Kinnaird Head Trust. The last to reside in the castle were John Gordon of Kinellar (1684-1764) and his wife, Henrietta Fraser (1698-1751).
