Eagle Island East

 This is the East, or more accurately, north light of Eagle Island. For rather fuzzy directions see the post for Eagle Island West (South) The two lights were both built in 1835 but this stone tower, originally 87ft tall, was deactivated in 1895 and cut down to a mere 40ft. As you can see from the photo below, it is located at the north (east) end of the enclosing wall, though, being unpainted and thus the same colour as the wall, it doesn't really stand out.
