One of the Seven Wonders
The Bell Rock Lighthouse has been described as one of the Seven Industrial Wonders of the World. Robert Stevenson built it between 1807-10 on the frequently-submerged Inchcape Reef that is 11 miles off the Angus coast. It is the oldest surviving sea-washed lighthouse in the world and some of its integral features have never been replaced during a history that now exceeds 200 years.
