The Cloch Lighthouse - John Knox - Framed Print - 12"H x 16"W

John Knox was a Scottish painter

Cloch or Cloch Point is a point on the coast of the Firth of Clyde. There has been a lighthouse since 1797 to warn ships off The Gantocks.

The Cloch Lighthouse was designed by Thomas Smith and his son-in-law Robert Stevenson. Building was completed in 1797. There appear to be two generations of keepers' houses, the older now used as stores and the more recent having crow-stepped gables.

The light was built by John Clarkson; Kermack and Gall built the tower, while Smith and Stevenson installed the oil lantern which was first lit on 11 August 1797.
