Fortrose Lighthouse

The lighthouse at Chanonry Point, Fortrose, was designed by Robert Louis Stevenson's uncle, Alan Stevenson and became operational in 1846. It is very similar in design to Cromarty Lighthouse, also designed by Alan Stevenson.

The total cost for Chanonry was £3,570; this included the lighthouse and keeper's cottage. The tower is 13 metres high and there are 48 steps to the top. When in operation, the light has a nominal range of 15 miles. The station was automated in 1984 and is now operated remotely from the Northern Lighthouse Board's offices in Edinburgh
