Artist's Description

Taken during the fantastic Bubblemeet in Edinburgh, Scotland on Saturday 23rd October 2010.

Discontinued probably in 1877, this tiny six sided very weathered sandstone lighthouse stands at the southern end of the Hawes Pier in South Queensferry.

Established 1812 by John Rennie, the hexagonal stone tower is 7m high with a conical top and central flue for ventilation of oil light. It is believed that the tower originally had a ball finial on the domed top and may have reached 8m.

A model of a boat under sail, which formerly served as a wind-vane on top of the lighthouse, is now preserved in the offices of British Railways, Waterloo Place, Edinburgh.

Hawes Pier Beacon is an Historic Scotland Category B listed structure. HB Number 40353.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi in the USA)
Lens: Sigma 18-200mm
