One of the highlights of travelling on the ferries out of Oban on the west coast of Scotland, bound for far away Scottish islands, is sailing past the Lismore Lighthouse. Regardless of the weather, the lighthouse is just as impressive in sun or grey skies, just great for taking photos. These photos were taken in May 2116 in a mixture of weather.
‘Lismore Light House’ is situated on Eilean Musdile which is an islet, south west of Lismore in the Inner Hebrides. The island lies in the entrance to Loch Linnhe, separated from Lismore by a sound ¼ miles across. This is another lighthouse built by the engineer Robert Stevenson in 1833.
June 1965 saw the biggest change for the lighthouse, when it was converted to automatic operation at an estimated cost of £10,000. The lightkeepers were then withdrawn. The beacon flashes white every 10 seconds and has a nominal range of 19 miles.,
