Langness lighthouse on Langness Peninsula was designed by Thomas Stevenson (Robert Louis Stevenson’s father) and first lit in 1880 and was finally automated in 1996 by the Northern Lighthouse Board.

The foghorn that is situated right behind the lighthouse and that is adjacent to Dreswick Harbour.

The footpath around the rear (or seaward side of the lighthouse) has recently been the subject of a Public inquiry on the Isle of Man which has ruled in favour of the ramblers.

Langness lighthouse on Langness Peninsula was designed by Thomas Stevenson (Robert Louis Stevenson’s father) and first lit in 1880 and was finally automated in 1996 by the Northern Lighthouse Board.

The cottages and lighthouse are now famous for being owned by Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson and his wife.

The footpath around the rear (or seaward side of the lighthouse) has recently been the subject of a Public inquiry on the Isle of Man which has ruled in favour of the ramblers.

Scarlett Point Tower is situated on the southwest coast of the Isle of Man, in Castletown. The high visibility orange building was formerly used a coastguard look out tower until the early 1970’s and was then decommissioned.

The Tower has been used by radio hams for the last few years however during World War 2, Scarlett Point was used as a radar station.

You can also see to the back right of the image the ‘Herring Tower’ which is situated on Langness Peninsula.

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 40mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
