A Note from the Artist

The Noss Head Lighthouse is an active 19th-century lighthouse near Wick in Caithness in the Highland council area of Scotland. It is located at the end of Noss Head, a peninsula on the north-west coast of Caithness that overlooks Sinclairs Bay.

A new style of lantern with diagonal instead of vertical framing was first used in the 18 metre high white stone tower designed by Alan Stevenson. Stronger and less liable to intercept light in any particular direction, it was adopted as the standard pattern for the service. The original lamp from Noss Head is now in the museum at Wick.

The name Noss Head comes from the Old Norse word, Snos meaning a nose and was inspired by the the protruding headland.
