Lighthouse of Stoer

In this 3 videos you get a good impression of the rough coast around the Lighthouse of Stoer, the lighthouse is just off Scotland's Route 66, but within walking distance of our B&B.

There are almost 200 lighthouses around Scotland’s wild coastline and the Stoer Head Lighthouse, also known as Ru Stoer Lighthouse, is one of them and is operated and maintained by the Northern Lighthouse Board.

Robert Stevenson designed this dramatic building in 1870 and the lighthouse is relatively short, only 14 metres high, but its elevation is 54 metres above sea level. The lighting system is an array of sealed-beam electric lamps and must burn at maximum intensity throughout the hours of darkness.
