A Note from the Artist

Dunnet Head Lighthouse sits on a remote moorland peninsula at the northernmost point of the Scottish mainland. Perched on top of stunning 100 metre cliffs, the lighthouse is reached by a single track road that winds its way across a loch-strewn heather moor.

The 20m tall lighthouse was built in 1831 by Robert Stevenson, grandfather of Robert Louis Stevenson and the adjacent cottages were home to the keepers and their families until 1989 when the light was automated. Today, the tower and keepers’ cottages are protected with Grade B Listed Status.

The high cliffs at Easter Head, upon which the lighthouse sits, provide a great vantage point for whale-watching, while pods of orcas, porpoises and dolphins can be spotted on migration around the north coast of Scotland.

The lighthouse is now checked remotely by the Northern Lighthouse Board operations centre in Edinburgh.
