North meet South; Lighthouses...

For some time there has been a plinth at the car-park at Sumburgh Head as part of the on going developments there. I thought may be it was going to be a viewing platform, the sort of thing that might have telescopes on to put your 20p in, but no, it's for some thing much more unique.

The old Muckle Roe Lighthouse...


I had a sneaky nip inside...


And enjoyed the view up to Sumburgh Head Lighthouse...


I very much doubt you'll be allowed to go up there when it is an 'information kiosk' which is a shame as it's pretty ace!

Anyway it's good to see the Sumburgh Head development coming on a pace and apparently the view from the new education centre  up there is pretty fantastic so I look forward to visiting it next spring when it should b all finished and open.
