It is very easy to pass this and not pop in. It is well worth going in and climbing the short flight to the top.

This is the smallest lighthouse I have ever seen, and so sweet! From the top you will not be able to take better photos because of the glass windows, but it is nice anyway.

As well as the railway bridge queensferry has another claim to fame the smallest working light tower in the world. It sits practically underneath the bridge. It is free to go in and doesn't take very long, but do check when it is open.
