Rubha nan Gall

Rubha nan Gall lighthouse is located north of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. The name means "Stranger's Point" in Scottish Gaelic. It was built in 1857 by David and Thomas Stevenson and is operated by the Northern Lighthouse Board. The lighthouse was automated in 1960 and the nearby former keeper's cottage is a private residence.

In August 2013, the former keeper's cottage, together with 80 acres (32 ha) of land and 1 mile (1.6 km) of shore front, was put up for sale at £225,000. Access is by sea or a 1.5 miles (2.4 km) muddy footpath from Tobermory along the steep wooded coastline. The cottage has no mains electricity, water or sewer connections; instead a private spring supplies water, and solid fuel or gas provide heat and light.
