This Lighthouse was established by David Stevenson in 1927 as a cast iron octagonal tower on Ardtornish point, a headland jutting out into the Sound of Mull from Morvern.  In 2001 this was replaced by a skeletal tower clad with white aluminium panels.  The solar powered light is a sectored light showing two flashes every 10 seconds, either, red, green or white, depending on the direction of approach.
