Kylerhea Lighthouse

(Kylerhea Minor Light)

A white tapering square tower located on the eastern shore of Skye in Highland, Kylerhea Lighthouse (or Kylerhea Minor Light) overlooks the strait of Kyle Rhea a mile (1.5 km) north of the settlement of Kylerhea. It is 7m (23 feet) in height and was built in 1892 for the Northern Lighthouse Board by David A. Stevenson (1854 - 1938) and Charles Stevenson (1855 - 1950) as an unmanned beacon. A wide metal gallery surrounding the tower was a later addition. The light remains operational and its operation is continuously monitored from the Northern Lighthouse Board Headquarters in Edinburgh.
