Rubh Re Lighthouse

I think I posted a pic of this lighthouse previously. It's Rubh Re lighthouse near Gairloch. It was engineered by David Alan Stevenson and built in 1912.
The Stevensons were the original Lighthouse Family, not to be confused with the crap band from the nineties.
A more in depth post about them will follow, because they're a pretty fascinating bunch. In the meantime these pics should whet the appetite.
PC is going to the hospital for sick PCs tomorrow. So there may be a shortage of posts next week. Don't miss me too much.

  1. Dramatic sky! Hope the pc makes a full recovery and doesn't need too much after-care.

  2. The light in that second photo is really great!

    Is this the lighthouse that's a B&B now? Or was that another lighthouse?

    Good luck with the geeks. ;-)

  3. Very beautiful snaps and good use of light. The cloud formations are wonderful.

  4. Fantastic shots of the lighthouse, the second one is my favourite.

    Have a great day

  5. It's amazing how quickly the sky can be different!
    Like your photos of the lighthouse!

  6. I love your lighthouse pics.We have on just up the road at Lossiemouth. Have you read the book called The Lighthouse Stevensons? I can't remember who wrote it, but it's a must read for anyone interested in lighthouses.

  7. Oh, come on! How long do those pc doctor's need. I am missing my own country.
