A Lighthouse of Scotland

SC 50 Rhinns of Islay
latitude 55° 40' 22.6" N
longitude 6° 30' 47.6" W

On the Isle of Orsay, it sits across an inlet from the beautiful fishing village of Portnahaven. To get here, you must take the ferry to Port Ellen, then take A846 to Brigend then travel A847 down the long finger of the Rinns Peninsula where the road will end in Portnahaven. If you want to inspect the lighthouse closely, you'll need to find a local fisherman to take you the 10 minutes across the inlet to Orsay. ARLHS # SCO-184 (A 4256)
