Fladda lighthouse

Fladda is one of the Slate Islands in the Sound of Luing. It is a considerable hazard to navigation as it sits right in the middle of the fairway and is surrounded by swirling tides.

The lighthouse was built by David and Thomas Stevenson in 1860. The light flashes every 9 seconds. To the east the light flashes white but is unlit to the west.



  1. Hello! Nice blog!. Anyway, please check my sports blog, The Frustrated Sports Analyst. Thanks!

    I'm planning to write about water sports, kayaking included. I was thinking maybe could exchange links.

    Just drop me a note if something's up.


  2. Thank you Kerry, let me know when you do your kayaking page and I will post a link.
