Kinnaird Head (New) Lighthouse
Just in front of the Old Kinnaird Lighthouse in Fraserburgh, which now belongs to the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses stands a small automatic light tower, 10 metres in height. The lighthouse was positioned here as a replacement for the Old Lighthouse; the first to be built by the Northern Lighthouse Board.
The new light was seen as an alternative of automating the old lighthouse, which was donated to the Museum.
The white tower was built in 1991 and is one of several lighthouses along the coast of Scotland which follow this design.
The rotating Fresnel lens gives 1 flash every 5 seconds visible for 22 nautical miles and is controlled remotely from the Northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh.
