There is a lighthouse on the island, which was completed in 1790.
The lighthouse was fully automated in the 1990s and is now remotely monitored from the Northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland. According to a Knight Frank representative, the traditional lantern and lens have been replaced with solar-powered LED lights at the top of the tower.
The island has a five bedroom house.
The former lighthouse keeper’s home includes two living rooms and a bathroom, as well as a kitchen and a freezer room. Knight Frank’s listing states that the house has not been used for years and “needs an update”.

The outbuilding contains another bedroom, a kitchen, a living room and a shower. There are also additional outbuildings currently used for storage.
