View from the top of the lighthouse tower

The Tower

Thanks to a joint partnership between the Northern Lighthouse Board and the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse Trust, you can now climb to the top of Ardnamurchan lighthouse between April and October.

Please note that the climb to the top of the tower is quite strenuous (152 steps and two ladders) and is only suitable for people who are physically fit. Children under 5 are not allowed to climb the tower. Owing to the nature of the building, there can unfortunately be no disabled access to the tower.

Charges for the tour, which includes entry to the Exhibition Centre, are as follows:

Adults: £6
Children under 16, senior citizens, concessions: £4
Family group (4 persons): £16

Tours of the tower start every half hour from 11 a.m. until 4.00 p.m. Please telephone to book in advance.

On days when essential maintenance is being carried out, the tower will be closed to visitors.
