The World’s Smallest Operational Light Tower

At North Queensferry in Fife, Scotland under the shadow of the Forth Bridge sits the smallest operational light tower at the end of a small jetty. Only one person at a time can enter to view the light tower and there are only a few steps up a spiral stair to the light itself.

The light tower was built in 1817 by Robert Stevenson as a key part of the Queensferry Passage across the Forth. It fell into a state of decay after two centuries of time, tides and the prevailing winds. North Queensferry Heritage Trust took on the restoration of the Light Tower and this important part of Scottish maritime history was carefully restored to full working order.

 The light tower reopened to the public in June 2010, when HRH The Princess Royal relit the lamp 120 years after it fell into disuse.
