Fraserburgh Harbour Lighthouse

Fraserburgh Harbour Lighthouse was built at the end of Balaclava Breakwater in the fishing harbour of Fraserburgh in 1882.

The original pier was built in 1856-7. The harbour lighthouse was built when the breakwater was extended. It was named Balaclava Breakwater after the Battle of Balaclava, which took place during the Crimean War on 25th October 1854.
