Killantringan Light Keeper’s House and Lighthouse Cottage enjoy a brilliant position beside a decommissioned lighthouse, perched high on a cliff in Dumfries and Galloway which is a haven for wildlife including pine martins, golden eagles, red deer, red squirrels and natterjack toads.

Accommodation in the Light Keeper’s House is spread over two floors with the living rooms on the first floor making the most of the spectacular views; these include an open plan sitting room/dining room. Downstairs the bedrooms are on the ground floor – two are en-suite and the remaining four bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.

The cottage is a three bedroom property with one reception room located beside the Light Keeper’s House.
