Loch Ryan lighthouse, Cairnryan, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland

Loch Ryan (Cairnryan) lighthouse was designed by Alan Stevenson and first lit in 1847.

 

The immaculate lighthouse (which was recently repainted) sits rather forlornly in what can only be described as an abandoned yard just along from the ferry terminal.

 

The following link on the web shows the lighthouse as it was built before it was automated in the 1960s and the keepers’ accommodation was demolished.
