For the Safety of All: A Story of Scotland's Lighthouses.
Regular price £25.00
Lighthouses puncture Scotland's coastline - a stoic presence on the edge of the landscape. Since the earliest of these hardy structures were raised, they have been a lifeline for seafarers at the mercy of treacherous weather and uncertain navigation. Today over 100 of Scotland's lighthouses are listed buildings.
Donald S Murray explores Scotland's lighthouses through history, storytelling and the voices of the lighthouse keepers. From ancient beacons to the work of the Stevensons and the Northern Lighthouse Board, and from wartime strife to automation and preservation, lighthouses stand as a testament to the nation's innate connection to the sea.
