Clythness Lighthouse

Clythness Lighthouse lighthouse was built by David A Stevenson in 1916.

The lighthouse, located between Tarbat Ness and Noss Head Lighthouses was built to guide warships during World War 1.

It is located on a cliff about 45 metres high with a near vertical drop.

Clythness Lighthouse was automated in 1964, and on 18th March 2010, following a review of aids to navigation, the lighthouse was permanently discontinued.  

The lighthouse and cottages have since been sold off privately.
