Eilean Glas lighthouse

Eilean Glas lighthouse

Linked to Harris by a bridge, Scalpay is and island of rocks and moorland, home to a fishing community and the ancient Eilean Glas Lighthouse.
The island was owned by Mr. Fred Taylor as he heredited it from his father, until he recently gave it back to the 322 residents as a gift. Now the residents are very active in trying to keep the island alive, there is a post office, a delicious tea-room, plans to bring the lighthouse back to its ancient splendour, so go visit them!
