Lighthouse of the Week, May 7-13, 2017: Corsewall, Scotland, UK

Around the world there are several lighthouses that have been converted to unique hotels, which offer a fairly unusual vacation getaway experience. The Corsewall Lighthouse in Scotland, which is still a working lighthouse, offers 11 suites and rooms, as well as a dining room, WiFi, nearby golf, and nearby park areas. It's located on Scotland's southeastern coast.

Here are the basic details, acquired from the esteemed Lighthouse Directory:

"1817 (Robert Stevenson). Active; focal plane 34 m (112 ft); five white flashes every 30 s. 34 m (112 ft) round masonry tower with lantern and gallery, attached to 2-story keeper's house. Lighthouse painted white with buff trim; lantern painted black. The keeper's house has been converted into a small hotel."

And below I have several pictures and a short video. Looks like a good place to get away if you want to get away, but I expect it gets a wee bit windy at times.
