I love North Queensferry and usually try to visit whenever I'm in Fife. This wee lighthouse shouldn't be overlooked. One person at a time and I can honestly say on all my travels, I've never seen another like it.

A lovely tiny light in a lovely village and harbour on the banks of the River Forth. Worth going up the few steps inside to see the works/light. A lovely location under the Forth bridges. Fascinating history
