Arnish Lighthouse

This is the archive of the Arnish Lighthouse blog, initially hosted on the BBC website, and from 2009 until late July 2014 on The latter service was withdrawn due to falling interest and lack of funding.

It was good while it lasted, and I am sad to have to close the book on Arnish Lighthouse. The real lighthouse will continue its operation as a maritime beacon, as it has done since 1862.

The mission statement behind this blog:

I have been in Lewis since late 2004 and am observing life on this fascinating island from an outsider’s perspective. I look out at the lighthouse every day - as it looks out over the island and the sea.
