Carraig Fhada Lighthouse
On a peaceful, clear day, it is hard to see the need for the lighthouse, but these are quite dangerous waters and incoming craft take a line which gives maximum safety between the rocks. See LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) for more information on this structure built in 1832.
