Butt Of Lewis, Isle Of Lewis.

Butt of Lewis Lighthouse.  “The rugged and windy Butt of Lewis was hardly the ideal place for golf, but Clyne brought his clubs and golf habit with him from the Langness station. The first and last holes at the Butt of Lewis were just outside the door of the principal keeper’s house. There was a large opening, filled with water, in the middle of the golf course. This dangerous location, known as the Quarry Hole, claimed the life of a local boy who fell into it during Clyne’s stay. He wrote that the keepers never again passed the Quarry Hole without a shudder.” (1900)
