Iceland Cruise March 2018 – On leaving Kirkwall, Orkney, the ship sailed passed a lighthouse on the uninhabited Isle of Hillier Holm, off the coast of the Isle of Shapinsay, To my delight it was another Stevenson Lighthouse for my ‘Lighthouse Categories’ I was hoping to have seen more lighthouses, but we did most of our sailing at night, and the weather on sea days, was always wet and windy. So I enjoyed taking lots of photos of this lighthouse at such close quarters. The keepers cottage is quite derelict, as I think it was sold quite a few years ago, but has just been left. The light is still managed by the Northern Light House Board.
Designed in 1893 by brothers, David A. and Charles Stevenson. The light was automated in 1967 and the tower rises to 42 ft – 12.8 meters high.
