Neist Point lighthouse

Neist Point Lighthouse stands at the most westerly point of the Isle of Skye. The light was first lit in November 1909 and the fog signal (which has since been discontinued) first sounded in June 1910. The tower is 19 metres high and stands at 43 metres above sea level. The light can be seen up to 24 miles away. The light was automated in 1990 and the lighthouse keepers' cottages sold. The light is monitored remotely by the Northern Lighthouse Board.
