Tarbat, Ness

This photograph, taken by Tom Baker, shows the north-west tip of the Tarbet Ness peninsula, near the village of Portmahomack on the east coast of the Highlands. Parts of the craggy coastline obscure the Lighthouse which sits on the tip of the peninsula. Built by the renowned Scottish engineer Robert Stevenson in 1830 the lighthouse measures 53 metres high, with 37 steps to the top. James Smith of Inverness was the contractor responsible for the lighthouse's construction. It is the third tallest in Scotland, only eclipsed by those at North Ronaldsay and Skerryvore.
