NS4273 : The Longhaugh Light

taken 10 years ago, near to Milton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

The Longhaugh Light
The Longhaugh Light
The light is located on the oldest part of NS4273 : The Lang Dyke. As can be seen from the other side of the river, the word "LONGHAUGH" is painted in black on its other side (the light is so named because it is located just north of Longhaugh Point; see the 1:25000 map).

Behind it, to the right, a structure visible in the river is one of the NS4273 : Bollards on the River Clyde.
The Lang Dyke :: NS4373

This is a training wall, built in order to deepen the channel of the River Clyde for shipping. Construction began in 1773, although there would be later additions to the dyke. See NS4273 : The Lang Dyke for a much more detailed account.
