Stoer Head Lighthouse - Rubha Stòr
In early May we set off for Stoer Lighthouse. I am actually a little hesitant to post this as I would so much love to keep this gem all to myself but I can't not tell you about it ... it just wouldn't be fair.
Stoer Lighthouse is a Stevenson Lighthouse which means it is one of a series of lighthouses built by David and Thomas Stevenson (sons of the esteemed lighthouse builder Robert Stevenson).
Stoer Lighthouse was built in 1870, stands 14 metres high and can be seen at a distance of 24 miles out to sea.
The lighthouse was manually operated until 1978 when it was automated ... the former keeper's quarters are now available to rent which is where we stayed ... and it was great.
