Seen distantly from Hascosay Sound. Looks like a modern replacement. TBC whether anything remains of original structure.

The original lighthouse (built 1904) was replaced by a new box-shaped monstrosity in July 2001 (source ). I haven't been able to find any pictures of the original lighthouse online. I viewed the replacement from Hill of Lussetter pillar (TP3886) at a distance of 1.7 miles. Also viewed 2 days later from Gillis Field on Fetlar (TP3356) at a distance of 4.3 miles.
