Northern Lighthouse Board

Northern Lighthouse Board had a depot on West Harbour Road, Granton for many decades, until around 2002.  The frontage included a 'lighthouse building' but it never actually operated as a working lighthouse.

It was planned that the building would be used to test the lights, but this was never very successful due to the surrounding street lighting.

Northern Lighthouse Board's yard and workshops lay immediately to the south of the lighthouse building..

After the Northern Lighthouse Board left these premises others moved in.   Now [ Nov 2004] the lighthouse is used by Lighthouse Studios and the building to its right is used by Hi-Rope Engineering Services.
