Cloch (Gaelic for Stone) Lighthouse on the Firth of Clyde was built in 1797
was designed by Thomas Smith and son-in-law Robert Stevenson.
This was the venue of our club outing on Wednesday. I only took a few images of the lighthouse as I'd wandered off looking for something different then my battery expired
and what I thought was my back up battery was also flat!
I was surprised and delighted at response to Fancy a Curly Wurly!

You timed your visit to perfection, the light so beautiful at that time of evening, Kate; and what excellent weather conditions overall.
A very fine capture of the Cloch, one of the best I have seen. Please have another UA.
It is a spot so well known to me as I was a JHO in Larkfield Hospital in 1967/68 and it was there that I met my future wife: we used to walk for miles and a favourite was from the hospital down to the front of Gourock and right round to the Cloch. Not so sure I could manage that distance these days, even when in top form.
