BBC2 Scotland showed The Lighthouse Stevensons to mark the 200th anniversary of the Bell Rock Lighthouse.
I have blogged about George Edgar, who was the first of several Keepers of the Butt of Lewis Lighthouse, as well as those of the Arnish, Tiumpan Head & Eilean Glas lighthouses.
This description from Barrahead gives an impression of the natural forces that the lighthouse builders had to contend with.
The programme includes an interview with Bella Bathurst who wrote the The Lighthouse Stevensons which is a brilliant read.
Fàilte! (Welcome!)This blog is the result of my ongoing research into the people, places and events that have shaped the Western Isles of Scotland and, in particular, the 'Siamese-twins' of Harris and Lewis.
