Former foghorn
Former foghorn
The Kinnaird Head foghorn was state of the art in 1902 with its rotatable horn but in the age of modern radar and radio it is now redundant and silent. Note the pipework and tanks for compressed air, supplied from compressors beside the old lighthouse. Compare the 'Torry Coo' foghorn at the mouth of the River Dee in Aberdeen, which was installed at the same time: Link . A similar foghorn at Boddam has been now been dismantled.
