In addition to the annual membership benefits, Life Members also receive:

    • A Guest Allowance - each life member can take 2 adults, or up to 6 accompanying children (aged 5-15 years) OR a combination of 1 adult and up to 3 accompanying children as guests to Historic Scotland attractions free of charge.
    • Free entry to English Heritage, Cadw and Manx National Heritage sites immediately on joining. At English Heritage and Cadw sites, the guest allowance is 1 adult or 6 children. At Manx National Heritage sites the allowance is for 6 accompanying children.

Member Tickets - Advanced Booking Required

Our sites now require advance booking online in order to manage capacity and maintain social distancing for the health and safety of you and our staff.

Keep up to date with our reopening plans and see the Frequently Asked Questions.

You will still need your valid membership card, or membership confirmation email, for access so please ensure that you take this with you when you visit. You should include any children under 5 visiting with you on your booking.

Kinnaird Head Castle and Lighthouse is operated and run by The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses. At present they are only offering a premium service where visitors are guided up the lighthouse and due to the additional staffing and reduced visitor numbers they are unfortunately not able to offer Historic Scotland members free entry.

We appreciate your support and understanding during this unusual time.
