This image was taken as I went for a walk to capture the essence of the Sumburgh Head Light.
Located on the southern tip of Mainland in The Shetland Isles of Northern Scotland, this lighthouse is under a major renovation project, as it was one of the lights built by Robert Stevenson in 1821…The Northern Lighthouse Board operate the light, whilst the Shetland Amenity Trust own the site and plan to restore the lighthouse facilities and build a visitor centre..
Robert Stevenson was the Grandfather of Robert Louis Stevenson.
Do not be misled by the works going on with the lighthouse, as no-matter where you go for a walk in The Shetlands you will be pleasantly surprised….
