I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to feature some lovely family holiday photographs from 1965 to Killantringan Lighthouse. This provides a snapshot into another perspective of the working life of the Lighthouse Keepers. I hope you enjoy the photographs provide to me by Robert McLuckie.
Thank you Robert.
I am delighted to showcase some wonderful images on the website of two former Northern Lighthouse Board Tender Vessels. Sent to me from Robert McLuckie a keen photographer of ships and vessels around Scotland. The images all taken by Robert in 1985 first show the NLV Fingal in various locations in Oban Bay and at the stores depot.
Pharos is shown at the Leith/Granton Harbour where the former NLB stores are located. Robert informed me at the time he was fortunate to be invited to have a tour of Pharos. I hope you enjoy these images in the collection as much as I do. Thank you Robert for sharing the images and your memories. To see the images click the button below.
