Designed by Alan Stevenson, engineer. Lighthouse, built 1853, attendant buildings probably contemporary. All whitewashed, contrasting painted detail.

LIGHTHOUSE is moderately tall, standard design - battered circular-section tower; domed lantern with latticed glazing; door at front with simplified neo-Egyptian doorcase.

HOUSES nearby, single storey flat-roofed block, flues over cross-walls are ground 2-3-2. Walled garden at front.

Statement of Interest

De-manned in 1963 - houses currently (1991) in use as self-catering accommodation.

Seemingly a replacement for what appears to have been a navigational tower in the grounds of the old Seaforth Lodge, all demolished by the Mathesons.
