Princess Anne Visits Lighthouse

Princess Anne visited Ardnamurchan Point lighthouse today - she's seen here, at right, at the top of the tower.

Princess Anne, as the Patron of the Northern Lighthouse Board, is travelling around Scotland on a three-day tour which includes visiting lighthouses.  While the Daily Telegraph, here, states that she is trying to fulfill an ambition to visit all of Scotland's 206 lighthouses, she has visited Ardnamurchan before.

The princess was watched by some of Kilchoan Primary school's pupils and accompanied on her tour by, among other officials, Davie Ferguson, who is retained by the NLB to care for the lighthouse.

She is travelling around the west coast aboard the NLB's Pharos, and flew in to the lighthouse aboard the ship's helicopter.

Many thanks to Ritchie Dinnes for the photos.

  1. The keen eyed will have also spotted Graham Crerar, resident of Sanna, also in the pictures. Graham is a trustee of the NLB and no doubt would have a particular interest in visting his local lighthouse.
