This lighthouse was first established in 1906, but in 2001 a tower similar to Ardtornish Point lighthouse was erected on the site.  To distinguish it from Ardtornish it has a white light flashing every 6 seconds.  The light is on a rock known as Dearg Sgear, the northernmost of the Eileannan Glasa, which are in the middle of the Sound of Mull about two nautical miles north east of Salen.
