Eshaness Lighthouse

I was particularly keen to visit Eshaness as, several months ago, when this holiday was in the planning stages, I had to pick a place I had never been to and use it as a setting for a story. I chose Eshaness, did some research and wrote a story.

The dramatic coastline was formed 360 million years ago by a series of volcanoes.
