Does anyone know where this photo was taken?
Aye, it is Southerness lighthouse,
looks a wee bit better now that it's had a coat of paint. Built in 1812 and paid for by Dumfries traders due to the heavy loss of shipping in the treacherous Solway Firth.
Welcome to the site, Your first post and my thousandth one. bit of a co-incidence!
Digging a bit deeper into the history of this lighthouse the original was built in 1748, and was later increased to its present height. The light was extinguished in 1936.
