South Stack Lighthouse, Holy Island, Isle of Anglesey

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.
