Photographs of South Stack Lighthouse perched atop South Stack Rock
A brief history:
- South Stack Lighthouse was designed by Daniel Alexander and completed in 1809, the stone tower (91-foot tall) was built on the summit of a small Island known as South Stack (South Stack Rock)
which lies separated from Holy Island on the far north-west coastline.
- The iconic lighthouse was built to warn ships of dangerous rocks below and to allow safe passage for ships navigating the treacherous Dublin-Holyhead-Liverpool sea route.
- RSPB South Stack Cliffs Reserve is located on the far north-western part of Holy Island overlooking the iconic South Stack Lighthouse.
- The reserve has a number of nature trails which provide access to maritime and lowland heathland, along the cliffs and all the way to the top of Holyhead Mountain.
