Scope and Content Barra Head Lighthouse, Berneray, Western Isles, from west Barra Head Lighthouse, designed by Robert Stevenson (1772-1850) and opened in 1833, and is a white conical tower 18m in height. Built of stone, it has a corbelled walkway around the outside of the lantern. In the background the keepers' houses can be seen. They are separated from the lighthouse tower by a courtyard. To the right of the lighthouse there is another single-storeyed building. Around the tower there is a single-storeyed semicircular building with two entrance doors. Berneray, on which the Barra Head Lighthouse is situated, is the most southerly of several small islands to the south of the island of Barra. The islands are often known as the Bishop's Isles, as in medieval times they belonged to the Bishop of Man and Sodor. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
