Dunnet Head Light

Dunnet Head is a peninsula in Caithness. Its point is the most northerly point on the Scottish mainland. Dunnet Head lighthouse stands at 105 metres tall and was built in the early 1830s by Robert Stevenson. The light was automated in March 1989 and is now remotely monitored from the Northern Lighthouse Board HQ in Edinburgh. Despite the cliffs on which the lighthouse stands being over 90 metres tall, windows on the lighthouse have been broken by stones thrown up by stormy seas.
