Duncansby Head Lighthouse in 1974
Duncansby Head Lighthouse in 1974
Much more building there than today (see ND4073 : Duncansby Head: the lighthouse). Perhaps the large building on the left was blocking the light! I assume though that the lighthouse has converted from manned to unmanned and the accommodation buildings were not needed any more.
