Lismore Lighthouse...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...The Connel Bridge was opened in 1903, so Alexander McLeod who was the lighthouse keeper here would never have seen this sight, he died in 1899, drowned near the Kyle of Lochalsh. Ann Kinchington and I are on the trail of Alexander as he was Ann's Great Grandfather.

Scotland was, I seem to remember, the testing ground for a lot of developments in lighthouse design and construction.
A bright, optimistic, reassuring image.

Lovely light and composition, with the lighthouse standing out against the blue hue Dougie.

I wonder if it's a boring job, though I suppose tramping up those stairs every day would keep you fit if it didn't kill you.

Well composed with the whites of the lighthouse and the bridge so beautifully contrasted with the blues.

Interesting information on your search Dougie but, above all, this image has such beautiful light, picking out the bridge as well as the lighthouse.

A very fine composition with the Connel Bridge nestling in the b/g.
