Archaeology Notes

NR79SW 8 72141 92628

Lighthouse [NAT]

OS (GIS) AIB, March 2008.

Not to be confused with Skervuile Lighthouse (NR 60457 71194), for which see NR67SW 1.

Although noted by the OS as a Lighthouse, this structure is entered under the classification of Beacon, having apparently never been occupied. It marks an isolated and dangerous rock near the northern end of the Sound of Jura.

The administrative area assigned to this record is essentially tentative; the rock may fall within the parish of Craignish.

Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 31 March 2008.
