Ian Ramon was completing a full repaint of the lighthouse foghorn this morning. Ian always does things with style, so he wore his red boiler suit to match the paint colour.
Many visitors will know Ian from his present job working for the Lighthouse Trust, where he greets visitors at the top of the lighthouse tower. Ardnamurchan lighthouse is at the most westerly point on the British mainland, and has magnificent views across the Minches to the lesser isles and, on brilliant days like today, as far as the islands of the Outer Hebrides - see its website here.
Ian is well-qualified for his present job. He was for many years one of the lighthouse keepers at Ardnamurchan Point, so can describe life as a keeper as well as explaining how things like the foghorn worked.
