Kerrera North Spit light is a simple 10 meter high red and white striped concrete tower situated on the isle of Kerrera, on the opposite side of the entrance channel to Oban from Dunollie Lighthouse.

The lighthouse marks the island to the west of the port's northern entrance, at it's narrowest point.

Oban is the home port of many of Caledonian MacBrayne's ferries to the Western Isles, and the sound between Kerrera and Dunollie is used by many large vehicle ferries on a daily basis.

The light is an automatic solar powered red LED, exhibited from an open platform atop the tower, which flashes once every 3 seconds.
