Sanda Island is a small island off the southern tip of the Kintyre peninsula, near Southend and Dunaverty Castle in Argyle and Bute.
On clear days Sanda can be seen from the Isle of Arran and from northeast County Antrim. It is known locally on Arran and on the Antrim coast as “Spoon Island” because of its resemblance to an upturned spoon.
At the southern tip of the island perches the lighthouse built in 1850 by Alan Stevenson. When seen from the sea to the south, the natural arch, and the lighthouse on the rock can look like a ship, hence its name “The Ship” on marine charts. When The Northern Lighthouse Board decided to build on the summit of the island, Stevenson designed a three stage enclosed staircase with two towers to access the lighthouse, still the only one of its kind in Scotland.
The light was first exhibited in 1850.
