Mull of Galloway Lighthouse

By Natzdad
Perched high on top of the cliffs of Scotlandís most southerly point, known as Stevenson Tower, was built by Robert Stevenson. It took 2 years to build, work commencing in 1828 and was first lit in 1830. The tower stands 26 metres high, and the actual light is 99 metres above sea level. On a clear night the light can be seen for some 28 miles distance.

The top of the wall acts as a pointer to the tower and replicates it's overall shape: well chosen viewpoint, making for a strong image compositionally, Michael.
