Waternish Point lighthouse
The Northern Lighthouse Board have operated gas powered systems for more than 100 years and these were the first automatic lights in Scotland. In general these were installed where a low range, eg less than 10 miles was required. A local attendant ensured that the gas supply was available and illuminated and that the gas mantle was in good condition. The structure consists of a concrete base, aluminium lightroom and a GRP roof. This lighthouse was selected in 07/02/01 for solarisation and modernisation by the Northern Lighthouse Board.
