Eigg Lighthouse

Eigg Lighthouse comprises a stumpy cylindrical white-painted tower on the east coast of Eilean Chathastail, a small island lying off the southeast coast of Eigg. It was built in 1906 by engineering brothers David A. Stevenson (1854 - 1938) and Charles Stevenson (1855 - 1950 ). Constructed of metal, the tower is only 8m (26 feet) high with a gallery just below the level of the lantern and a square platform built round its base. The light flashes white every six seconds and has a range of 8 nautical miles (15 km).
