The Lighthouses architecture is not very impressive but still gives this place its romantic atmosphere. You should take your time to explore the coastline and go for a walk or grab your binoculars and scan for whales, dolphins or explore the active bird life 🦅

You need to concentrate on the road, and it is single track with passing places 95% of the way from Lochinver. The views are stupendous, and it's a really good place to see wildlife and sea birds

The clifftop path heading north from the car park offers spectacular views back to the lighthouse. Great photo opportunity, but be very careful as the cliffs are high and winds can be gusty.

Attractive compact lighthouse at the end of a long road through beautiful scenery, Not much else there, Watch out if you take a walk around the lighthouse: sudden sheer drops to the sea.

I believe you would be able to see the outside of the buildings and enjoy the view and read history boards etc and would thoroughly enjoy the visit down to the lighthouse. The day we went we only viewed from the outside but... More
