Historic Lighthouse Location Map

Here is a map, using Davidson's 1903 map of Taiwan as a base, showing the location of various historic lighthouses around Taiwan and dates built. Note that the current lighthouse at Bitoujiao (鼻頭角) is a relatively modern (1960s) reconstruction ... but the scenery in and around is still gorgeous and worth the 40 minute walk from the main road!
