In 1845 a cast-iron beacon, based on the concept of Robert Stevenson’s at Carr Beacon in 1821 in Civil Engineering Heritage Scotland – Lowlands and Borders (R Paxton and J Shipway, 2007, 7-12) but about 40 ft tall, was erected offshore to mark Halliman Skerries (see engraving, page 137). It is still in service.
