@Walter Hinteler,
Sharps Island light, in the Chesapeake, is one that got displaced by ice in 1977. Its now permanently stationed in a few feet of water near Tilghman Island and is a good indicator to deep draft boats          http://www.lighthousefriends.com/ch30.jpg

Longstone lighthouse, in the Farne Islands, Northumberland, or Outer Farne as it was originally known, is most famous for being the home of keeper's daughter Grace Darling, who in 1838 heroically assisted her father by rowing out and rescuing 13 survivors of the ship, SS Forfarshire

South Stack lighthouse, off Holyhead Island, Anglesey, north Wales, was first proposed in 1665, but did not come into operation until 1809

The construction of the Dubh Artach lighthouse in the Irish Sea, off the west coast of Scotland, was overseen by Robert Louis Stevenson's father and is thought to have inspired sections of his novel Kidnapped

The lighthouse on Holy Island, just off the coast of Arran, Scotland, was also constructed by the Stevenson family

No, that lighthouse is shut down and closed to all. Its just a landmark to boat traffic now.

@farmerman,
The photograph almost looks like an avalanche of snow has hit the lighthouse tower.
