A wolf in sheep's clothing by LordLJCornellPhotos A wolf in sheep's clothing by LordLJCornellPhotos
Another picture from my trip to East Scotland last August. As it is so different to the West Coast I spent my time looking for the things that make it so different. That meant shooting pictures that, mainly, weren't landscapes. 
This is Kinnaird Head Lighthouse which is actually built inside Kinnaird Castle. The castle was built in the 16th century but was sold to the Northern Lighthouse Board in 1787. This was Scotland's first lighthouse. Initially it was just a huge lamp on top of the castle but that was causing structural problems.  "Robert Stevenson engineered a foundation, walls and a spiral staircase through the heart of the castle, completing construction in 1824. He even preserved the original castle structure – this has to be seen to be believed!" The lighthouse is now a museum and is not working. There is a new lighthouse very nearby which continues to operate today.

Wonderful photograph...a picture postcard and perhaps salable to the proprietors of this museum ;)
