The lure of lighthouses
Butt of Lewis Lighthouse
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
Built by David Stevenson in 1862, the Butt of Lewis sits at the northwestern tip of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. This red brick structure stands 37 meters high in the area where some of the UK's highest recorded wind speeds have occurred. Going west from here across the Atlantic is Iceland.
