The new, current, light is on the left and the historic original lighthouse on the right.
The 16th century castle was altered to become the first proper lighthouse in Scotland in 1787. The lighthouse as seen today was constructed, inside the castle(!) in 1824. The lighthouse keepers cottages followed in 1902. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1991.
