A Note from the Artist

Corsewall Lighthouse is located at Corsewall Point, Kirkcolm near Stranraer in the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland. First exhibited in 1817, it overlooks the North Channel of the Irish Sea. In 1814, a Kirkman Finley applied to the Trade of Clyde for a lighthouse on Corsill Point. Robert Stevenson, inspected in December of that year and soon the 10m tower and house were in the first stages of construction.

In its first year of operation, the Principal Keeper was reported for incompetence after falling asleep on duty as the revolving apparatus of the light had stopped and was observed as such by passing shipping. He was suspended and ultimately demoted to assistant at Bell Rock. I guess the life of a keeper doesn’t suit everyone!

In November 1970, Concorde reportedly flew over the lighthouse on a trial flight and shattered panes of glass on the lighthouse. Later flights did not affect it.

Although the light is still operated by the Northern Lighthouse Board, since automation in 1994 the rest of Corsewall Lighthouse has been converted into the unique Corsewall Lighthouse Hotel.
