Came looking, mistakenly, for a geocache. But found a great location.

Spectacularly-set lighthouse at the southern extremity of Shetland, currently undergoing extensive redevelopment. A pillar, an intersected station and two [former] Active stations also make this an interesting place for mapping fans! Ten days later I viewed the lighthouse from the pillar on Fair Isle (TP3094) at a distance of 24.7 miles.

Was there to see the nearby pillar, but had a quick look around the lighthouse afterwards.
