The Northern Highlands and the Western Isles Sights

Butt of Lewis Lighthouse

  • Nautical Site/Lighthouse

Updated 10/11/2013

Fodor's Review

At the northernmost point of Lewis stands the Butt of Lewis Lighthouse, designed by David and Thomas Stevenson (of the prominent engineering family whose best-known member was not an engineer at all, but the novelist Robert Louis Stevenson). The structure was first lighted in 1862. The adjacent cliffs provide a good vantage point for viewing seabirds, whales, and porpoises. The lighthouse is northwest of Port of Ness along the B8014.
