If you’d like to run your own Scottish hotel with a difference, then Corsewall Lighthouse may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Located on the rugged coastline of Corsewall Point, Kirkcolm in Dumfries and Galloway, the lighthouse dates back to 1815 and today, provides all the comforts of a boutique hotel.
Although now a hotel with self catering cottages, this A-listed building’s light still beams a warning for ships approaching the mouth of Loch Ryan.
The accommodation has been developed within the main bulk of the lighthouse building and is split over three floors.
This includes six bedrooms, five of which are en suite. There is a private bathroom for bedroom number six.
In addition to the six rooms, there are three self catering suites, which include the Lighthouse Suite, which boasts a sea facing conservatory, two bedrooms and kitchenette.
The North Channel Suite, which has a double or twin room, an ocean facing conservatory and kitchenette.
The Loch Ryan Suite , which is the current owner’s home and comprises two bedrooms, a lounge, bathroom and kitchen.
The current public rooms within the hotel include a reception, residents lounge, conservatory lounge and restaurant that seats 28 people.
Available separately are two attached self catering cottages – the Ballantrae Suite and the Stevenson Suite.
Both enjoy fantastic sea views and have two bedrooms, a lounge, bathroom and kitchen.
Given the stunning location and unusual nature of the property, the three star hotel has been run as a successful business over the last few years, and has won a number of accolades including one AA Rosette.
It is also listed in the Good Hotel Guide.
