Photographer's Note

Rua Reidh Lighthouse, is situated on a remote peninsula on the West Coast of Sutherland at the entrance to Loch Ewe in the Northwest Scottish Highlands.

Engineers David and Charles Stevenson, cousins of Robert Lewis Stevenson, built the lighthouse in 1910. It became fully automated in 1986 and is run by the Northern Lighthouse Board. There are spectacular views of the Isle of Skye and the Western Isles from across the seas of the Minch.

If you are brave enough to traverse the final three miles of the road to the lighthouse, you will be rewarded with spectacular views, a variety of animal and plant life, and the obligatory roaming sheep. Dolphins, seals and otters are quite frequently seen from the shores of the lighthouse as well.
