Lighthouse set to shine; HISTORY.
The lighthouse, designed by Robert Stevenson and opened in 1811, is regarded by many as the greatest ever built and a superb 19th century feat.
It stands 30 metres tall on a reef 11 miles off Arbroath.
Arbroath Community Planning Partnership and Angus Council will begin the yearlong celebration - The Year of the Light - in 2011.
Harry Simpson, of ACPP, said: "We are planning a great series of events in 2011."
