Newport-on-Tay Lightbeacon

Thanks to Brian Cargill for noticing and photographing this small but historic beacon at Newport-on-Tay, southwest of Tayport and across the River Tay from Dundee. Almost certainly this beacon dates from the Nineteenth Century and guided ferries crossing the river from Dundee. In poor condition today, it deserves to be recognized and restored.
