Located at the northern tip of the Rhinns of Galloway (Galloway Peninsula) where Loch Ryan and the North Channel meet (southwest coast of Scotland), this light's white conical tower stands 112 feet tall and shines 22 miles out to sea. It was designed by Robert Stevenson and is still an active aid. The former keeper's quarters is now operated as the Corsewall Lighthouse Hotel.
