Just look how cold that sea looks and believe me it was freezing up there this afternoon. Maughold Lighthouse was built in 1914 on the Southern side of Maughold Head, the fully automated light is 65m above sea level and access to the Lighthouse is via 129 steps (non Public access).

This image of Douglas Head Lighthouse was captured just before the last of the winters day sun dissapeared. Douglas Head Lighthouse was originally erected in 1832 and replaced by this Lighthouse in 1892 at a cost of £32,000 it stands 32m above sea level and the Lighthouse has now been automated and is now in private ownership.

We had a walk around the Point of Ayre this afternoon (2/7/11) and on the way back to the car we passed the main entrance to the lighthouse which is also a private residence – (click image for larger view). 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.
