Skerryvore, the #lighthouse on the skerry (from the Gaelic An Sgeir Mhòr, meaning ‘The Great Skerry”), is so remote that the keepers used to receive additional payments in kind. On top of that, it’s located in one of the stormiest parts of Scotland. In 1994 it was automated. Don’t you agree it’s one of the world’s most graceful? - - - - #unlimitedscotland#visitscotland#natgeouk#scotlandgreatshots#visit_uk#natgeotravel#scottishcollective#hiddenscotland#scotlandmagazine#scotlandlover#scotlandtravel#icu_scotland#wonder_fulplaces#scotlandshots#scotlandbeauty#traveldeeper#visitbritain#ukshots#bestunitedkingdom#yourbritain#welivetoexplore#earthfever#scotland_insta

Did you know that there are 7 different species of seagull that regularly breed in the U.K.? 6 of them in Scotland. 710,000 overwinter here. That’s a lot of gulls! The question is, do you love them or loathe them? - - - #seagulls#seabird#ocean#scotland#minimal#bluesky#nature#natgeo#natgeoscotland#visitscotland#animalkingdom#flyingbirds#scottishislands

The view of Ben Hough from Ben Hynish. Ben Hough reaches 119 meters. During the Second World War there was an RAF observation point on its summit, the ruins of which remain. Needless to say it has outstanding and far reaching views! - - - #tiree#hill#views#history#raf#visitscotland#scotland_ig#landscapephotography#farreachingviews#scottishcollective#hiddenscotland#unlimitedscotland

The buildings at Hynish were started in 1837 and comprised a dock, workshops and lodgings for those involved in the building of the Skerryvore Lighthouse (see previous post). Over 80 stonemasons worked here shaping over 4,300 blocks used in the building of the lighthouse. In 1842 the Skerryvore Lighthouse was completed and in the following year the Hynish pier was extended to allow the lighthouse vessel to berth. One of the buildings here is home to The Story of Skerryvore Lighthouse exhibition - worth a visit if you’re here. - - - #lighthouse#Tiree#scotland#visitscotland#ig_scotland#travelscotland#wonderful_places#scotlandlover#unlimitedscotland#hiddenscotland#traveldeeper#visitbritain#scotlandbeauty#scotlandshots#scotland_insta#abplace2b

#skerryvorelighthouse is located about 11 miles southwest off the coast of #tiree. Designed by Alan Stevenson, building commenced in 1838 and it took 6 years to build it. It was constructed using granite quarried on the Isle of Mull and stands 48 meters tall. Its light shines directly into our living room! Can you guess how many seconds there are in between each flash? - - - #scotlandshots#wonderful_places#travelling_scotland#visitscotland#scotland_insta#scotlandlover#scotlandbeauty#ig_scotland#hiddenscotland#scotland_ig#unlimitedscotland#scottishfold#wonderful_places#traveldeeper#visitbritain

Did you know that a #puffin can fly 48 to 55 mph (77 to 88 km/hr)? The puffin beats its wings rapidly to achieve this speed reaching up to 400 beats a minute. The wings can move so fast that they become a blur, giving a flying puffin the appearance of a black and white football... - - - #natgeouk#natgeotraveller#travelphotography#travel_captures#explore_wildlife#birdsofinstagram#instatravel#traveluk#scotlandtravel#lunga#treshnishisles
