Grinna Lighthouse (Norwegian: Grinna fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in the municipality of Vikna in Trøndelag, Norway. It was established in 1904 and automated in 1987.[1] Grinna lighthouse stands on the islet of Grinna in the South Gjæslingan island group on the north side of the Foldafjord. The 19-metre (62 ft) high red tower emits a light every six seconds. The white occulting light flashes every six seconds, and it can be seen for about 12.5 nautical miles (23.2 km; 14.4 mi).[2][3]
