Neist Point Lighthouse

Glendale, Scotland

Designed by lighthouse engineer David Alan Stevenson in 1909, the Neist Point Lighthouse is a popular lookout spot on the most western point of the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands. The 62-foot tower is perched on a rocky cliff; its penetrating light reaches 16 nautical miles, often cutting through the Moonen Bay coastline’s dramatic and ominous skies. Travelers may also spot the whales, porpoises, razorbills and European shags -- the bird, that is -- that call this coastline home.
