OS computed this trig 1961. The current light is a more recent 'flat pack' replacement. Unsure if possible concrete base of former LH can be classed as remains. The site is Perie Bard, a tidal island at the easternmost point of Mousa, which perhaps should be a Siblet.

Viewed the new lighthouse from Burraland (TP1791) at 1.84 miles and Helli Ness (TP3719) at 3.1 miles. A strange-looking structure which made me unsure it really was a lighthouse at first! I later discovered that the original lighthouse - which itself was only moved to Mousa in 1951 - was demolished some time after 1982 and a new square one established a few metres west. (See photos at http://shetlopedia.com/Mousa_Lighthouse ).
