A Lone Light, Rubha nan Gall, 1857 (Sound of Mull) – Scotland

DSC_0781

We were sailing back from the Isle of Coll, an Inner Hebridean Island, in 2013, on a very misty day, it had been warm, but the mist had stay with us all day.  This lone lighthouse was the only photo that I took on a three hour trip back to Oban.  I think its on Mull, but I’m not too sure, maybe someone can tell me 🙂  Anyway it is going in my ‘Lighthouse Category’

I found it 🙂 ………This is a traditional lighthouse designed by Thomas and David Stevenson. It was first established in 1857 and manned by keepers until 1960 when the light was automated. The tower is on a small islet joined to the keepers house and the shore by a bridge. The light is exhibited from a black-painted lantern room at the top of a 19 metre white-painted masonry tower. Access is by a one mile walk along the cliff top path from Tobermory, Isle of Mull.
