Sumburgh Head LighthouseShetland Category Museums & Galleries
Sumburgh Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in Shetland, and perhaps the most well known. Rising above the precipitous Sumburgh Head cliffs at the southernmost point of mainland Shetland, the Lighthouse is visible from land and sea for miles around.
Sumburgh Head Lighthouse, Visitor Centre and Nature Reserve provides an unforgettable visitor experience through the new Marine Life Centre, interpretive materials and access to previously unavailable areas of the site such as the Smithy, Engine Rooms and Radar Huts.
The newly built Education Centre with panoramic views out over the cliffs adds a new dimension to the area and an exellent facility for wet weather activities and private hire. The Visitor Centre areas are open daily between May and August. Guests are encouraged to purchase a ticket and enjoy the full Sumburgh Head experience!
