Leading Light, North Pier. Taken from Greyhope Road. July 2020.

This is one of two “Leading Lights” designed to aid navigation into Aberdeen Harbour. It is situated at the end of the North Pier, while the other is situated on Sinclair Road in Torry. Line the two lights up, and you will have safe passage into the harbour. They were erected in 1842, and originally powered by whale oil.
