Dance Information

Little Ross is a small island with a lighthouse in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. It is next to Meikle Ross on the mainland, which is a headland, and there are two small rocks off it, Sugarloaf and Fox Craig.

The lighthouse was constructed in 1843 by Alan Stevenson, it is approximately 66 feet tall and has been automated since 1961.
