Pros: Beautiful wood inside the tower.
Cons: Not normally open.

Just down the street is the second tower, if, however, is on private property. The windows in the tower are still blocked as it was used as a submarine tower in World War Two.

Pros: It's on the mainland and you can see it
Cons: No access to lighthouse or immediate grounds

It's a pretty light, and Edward Hopper has painted it. But you can't really get close to it, and the location is not particularly picturesque IMHO.
