The North Ronaldsay Lighthouse was built in 1854 by Alan Steven and is still in operation. Measuring 139 ft in height, visitor can climb the 176 steps to the top and see the massive Fresnel lens at the top that concentrates the beam emitted by the lighthouse over the North Atlantic. Take in the breathtaking views which on a fine day stretch over the other north isles of Orkney and sometimes as far as the Fair Isle in Shetland. Nearby is the Old Beacon, a ruined lighthouse located at Kirk Taing on Dennis Head. The building dates from 1789 and was the first lighthouse in Orkney.
