A Note from the Artist

Fair Isle North is one of two lighthouses on the remote island of Fair Isle, between Orkney and Shetland.

It’s located at Skroo at the north eastern most tip of the island. It has a similar history to Fair Isle South Lighthouse; both were the work of David A. Stevenson and his brother Charles Stevenson, and both were first illuminated in 1892.

However, the North Lighthouse is a much smaller tower, only 14m in height because it can take advantage of the 65m high cliffs on which it stands, to elevate the light giving a range of 41 km.

The light has a character of Flashing (2) every 30 seconds  The light has a nominal range of 35km and the fog signal a usual range of 3.5km.

The Light was automated in 1983.
