Marking most northerly point of UK mainland. Constructed 1831, automated 1989. Whilst Northern Lighthouse Board maintains an operational light, many of the buildings are in private ownership.

Was passing here to bag pillar. Also climbed walls and gates to be as far north as one can safely be on the cliff top edge. The roar from the waves below was incredible.

Very thick mist, after visiting trig, had to consult map to find direction we should walk to try and locate lighthouse!
