The historic Corsewall Lighthouse was built in 1815 by the engineer Grandfather of renowned Treasure Island author Robert Louis Stevenson, and is perched on the northern coast of the Rhins of Galloway, near Stranraer.
The A listed building is set in 20 acres of stunning coastal scenery and with its own ruined Iron Age fort, Dunskirkloch, on site. On a clear night the beams of several Scottish and Irish lighthouses can be seen guiding the ships across the North Channel.
Corsewall Lighthouse has been home to many Lighthouse Keepers and their families over the years and remains an important part of the network of Scottish Lighthouses. You can learn more about them from the Northern Lighthouse Board. Corsewall Lighthouse was automated in 1994 and subsequently the lighthouse keepers accommodation was converted into a hotel.
Corsewall Lighthouse Hotel has recently been bought by new owners, John and Helen who live on site. As custodians of this extraordinary site, they enjoy welcoming regular guests and helping new guests explore the magic of Corsewall for the first time.
