Built 1857, automated1960, decommissioned 1993 after the bridge was constructed. On Eilean Ban and owned by the eponymous trust, it's a Grade B listed structure.

Mr TJR leapt the wall for a better view of the lighthouse and the bridge trigpoints.

Viewed from bridge. Odd to look down on a lighthouse quite so vertically.

Parked at the old toll booth then walked over the Skye Bridge twice to view 5 trig structures associated with the building of the bridge plus a view under the Skye bridge from the SSW. I would love to get closer on a walk through the nature reserve on Eilean Ban.

Parked just before the main bridge, and first went to the wrong side.. as Dal says theres more than 1 trig here, so maybe it was something to do with the bridge but im not sure. Anyway went to the right side and bingo theres the lighthouse and another trigpoint

Heres the trig on the left side
Heres the trig on the right side..

Visible from A87 (best if parked). Of perhaps more interest is I saw three pillar trigs on Eilean Ban perhaps concerned with the building of the bridge? They had steel plates on top with three cuts in lieu of a spider. There may be more on the Kyleakin bank?
