Clythness Lighthouse


(Clyth Ness Lighthouse)

Clythness (or Clyth Ness) Lighthouse comprises a short white tower with a prominent wide red band, located on top of cliffs at Clyth, on the east coast of Caithness, 2½ miles (4 km) east of Lybster. The lighthouse was built in 1916, the work of engineer David A. Stevenson (1854 - 1938), and is 20m (66 feet) in height. It had a range of 16 nautical miles (30 km). The lighthouse was automated in 1964 but decommissioned in 2010 following a review published the previous year.
