Chanonry Point and Lighthouse

Chanonry Point Lighthouse

When you are looking across the Moray Firth from Dolphin View Cottage you will see the lighthouse at Chanonry Point on the opposite shore.  The lighthouse was established in 1846 by Alan Stevenson. The cost of building the lighthouse and lightkeepers' dwellings was £3,570. The light started operating on the night of 15th May 1846.  In 1984 it was fully automated and is now remotely monitored by the Northern Lighthouse Board in Edinburgh.  Every night you will see the light shining across the Moray Firth guiding seafarers through the Moray Firth narrows between Chanonry Point and Fort George.  The light has a range of 15 nautical miles!
