Built 1838 and properly known as Trwyn Du Lighthouse. Tidal causeway connects it to mainland at Dinmor Point; ebb tide on our visit so couldn't get too close. Nice view point for Puffin Island, which we should have been going to this morning but for high winds postponing the trip.

Well seen from Puffin Island boat. Quite a bit more than 2.50 but then we did get to explore Puffin Island :-)

Lighthouse from boat 'No passage landward'. Indeed.

Drove to Black Point, paying toll at the Priory. Dramatic location, with lighthouse intact and Puffin Island close by. The smaller structure on the Perch Rock nearby is, I think, a sandbar beacon

Trwyn Du Lighthouse. Photographed on a boat trip around Puffin Island, but also seen from Trwyn Penmon during a couple of previous visits.
