Rattray Head lighthouse

The Script error: No such module "convert".[2][3] Rattray Head lighthouse was built in 1895.[4][5] It was built by the engineers and brothers David Alan Stevenson and Charles Alexander Stevenson. In February 1982 it became unmanned and self-working.[2][3]

The lighthouse is accessible by way of a causeway that is usually underwater being only visible at low tide. It is wide enough for a vehicle to cross.

Remains of several shipwrecks can still be seen on the beach.[2][3]
