Situated at the most westerly point in mainland Britain this lighthouse, designed by Alan Stevenson, first displayed a fixed light in 1849 and was converted to flashing in 1928. The associated buildings have been converted to a visitor centre, cafe and shop. The imposing pink granite tower is visible for miles around.
