The lighthouse Keeper's accommodation has been converted into a 4 Star hostel, there is also a self-contained apartment available to rent for 2 or more days. See their website www.ruareidh.co.uk for more details.
When we last visited the Rua Reidh lighthouse it was in November and we experienced snow, rain and glorious sunshine as well as a howling gale, all within a 15 minute period. During the spring, summer and autumn months you will experience changes in weather, not as extreme as the winter months, however you should always come prepared for all types of weather.
