Scurdie Ness Light

"Ferryden, Scotland, U.K."


Built: 1870
Automated: 1987

"This 128 foot tall, white conical tower is located on Montrose Point at the mouth of the South Esk River where it leads from the North Sea into the Montrose Basin. During World War II the entire tower was painted black, so as not to provide a distinctive daymark for German bombers. This light was designed by David and Thomas Stevenson and is still an active aid to navigation."
