North Ronaldsay Lighthouse

North Ronaldsay Lighthouse was built in 1852 just 43 years after the Old Beacon was decommissioned.

The lighthouse lies at the north of the island at Point of Sinsoss and is Britain’s tallest land-based lighthouse tower at 43 metres (141 ft). The lighthouse is a brick cylindrical tower that is unpainted with two white stripes.

The lighthouse visitor centre includes a cafe, gift shop, bike hire, lighthouse exhibition, island life exhibition and the wool mill.
