Today’s Fact: for over 150 years Robert Stevenson and his descendants designed most of Scotland’s lighthouses ( his grandson was the author Robert Louis Stevenson). They have stood the test of time and the elements and no doubt saved the lives of countless seamen over the years so well done to the Stevenson family!! The one we visited today was built in 1830 and is Scotland’s southernmost lighthouse. We climbed all 115 steps and have the certificate to prove it, though I don’t really think the effort warrants one! The views were amazing and we thought we could see Ireland off to the west.
