Seen from boat, island bagging in the Sound. Later seen from summit but unsufficient time to check whether anything (e.g. base) remains of original structure, hence logged as PM.

The box-shaped lighthouse is a 1990s/2000s replacement for the original (built 1909). I am unable to find any photos of the original lighthouse online. I viewed the replacement from Hill of Ollaberry (TP3894) and later the same day Bardister block (TP10478). Also viewed 27/9/2012 from Hamars of Burraland (TP3582) and Ronas Hill (TP5725).
