NARRATIVE ON PRINT - The foundation-stone of the lighthouse was laid on Sunday, 10th July 1808, and the work was completed early in 1811, the light being exhibited for the first time on the night of 1st February in that year.

From the foundation to the top of the lantern, the tower is 115 feet high, 42 feet in diameter at the base, and 15 feet at the top. It contains six apartments. The light revolves, and is red and white alternately. Two large bells with which the tower is supplied are constantly tolled, night and day, in foggy weather, by the same machinery that moves the lights. Since the construction of the lighthouse, no vessel has been lost on the Inchcape Rock.
(Notes by George Hay, 1883)
