About NQHT

The North Queensferry Heritage Trust (NQHT) is a charity dedicated to preserving and promoting the history and beauty of North Queensferry and the immediate surroundings.

As members of the Scottish Civic Trust and the Scottish Wildlife Trust, we aim to encourage, preserve, develop and improve features of historic, architectural or environmental value.

In 2007 the committee of NQHT discussed the possibility of restoring the old and disused light tower. Fife Council, the owners of the pier, were approached and a long term lease was agreed which enabled us to start the planning and funding process.

Companies with experience in the restoration of the stone tower and the lightroom were few but nonetheless quotations were obtained from those who welcomed the challenge. A budget was drawn up and potential funders identified and approached.

Financial support came from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Fife Environment Trust and Fife Council together with a very considerable number of hours spent by NQHT volunteers.

Before work could start on this Grade-A structure Listed Building Consent was required which two years later completed the pre planning phase of this restoration project.

Work began on the project in Feb 2009 and was completed in August 2009. The Light Tower was officially re-opened by HRH The Princess Royal to the public in June 2010.
