    Visited here on Saturday. Loved that you can climb to the top & take in that amazing view! The little gift shop & friendly gentleman to answer any questions are a bonus!

    I think a tour of all south scotland lighthouses combined with a tour of the SWC300 would be great.

    Southerness originally called saltness . Brill picture

    Watch out for this soon !!!!!!!!!!!
