Esha Ness Lighthouse 1929, Northmavine Peninsula, Shetlands, Scotland

Scroll down to content

One of the lighthouses that we saw on our Iceland Cruise of March 2018, was Esha Ness Lighthouse, also known as Eshaness.  Suitiuted on the Northmavine Peninsula in the northern part of Shetland’s Mainland Island, we were on a coach trip to see the lighthouse and a walk along the Eshaness Cliffs.  Luckily no one else seemed to be interested in the lighthouse, so I got quite a few people free photos.  We had chosen this tour as I wanted the Stevenson Lighthouse for my lighthouse category, and the location of this one is spectacular, with the weather being perfect.  The light was built in 1929 and was the last manned lighthouse designed by a Stevenson, this one by David A Stevenson.  I have added the information board, hopefully you can read it.  It was interesting to see a light that I really never thought I would visit, and it’s one more ticked of the list.
