It was established in 1907, and automated in 1985. The little island of Struten has had a lighthouse since 1907. Fully automated since 1985, it is 12.5 meters tall, and has a wood tower with lantern and gallery attached to the front of a 1-1/2 story wood keeper´s house. German troops fortified the island during World War II, but the fortifications saw no fighting.

The Old Struten Lighthouse Association (Stiftelsen Gamle Struten) has leased the house from the Kystverket and made it available for overnight accommodations.
