A childhood trip to Little Cumbrae and then another a few years later to Ardnamurchan hooked the author on lighthouses. In 1964 he joined the staff of the University of Strathclyde’s Department of Economic and Industrial History and was encouraged to take up the study of industrial archaeology. Over the next twelve years the author travelled throughout Scotland recording all kinds of buildings and features relating to the country’s industries and transport. Transferred to Historic Scotland in 1984 with responsibility for industrial monuments one task was to revise the Listing status of lighthouses. The photos in the book come from this time and from later family holidays and other visits. As the author says ‘The photographs included do, I hope convey something of my admiration foe, and indeed love of these remarkable structures’.
