Check for closures before you travel.

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.

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.

For enquiries about tickets or ticketing issues, please contact ticketing@hes.scot

We appreciate your support and understanding during this unusual time.
