Thursday 12 April 2012: Chanonry Lighthouse
A bit of sun at last! This evening the Chanonry Lighthouse was bathed in sunlight.
The lighthouse was designed by Alan Stevenson, the building cost £3570 and it was first lit in 1846. The lighthouse was a singleton post & the keeper, in addition to his normal lightkeeping duties, was the "Observer" of Munlochy Shoal, Middle Bank East, Craigmee, Riff Bank East and Navitty Bank Lighted buoys.
