Scotland has a unique and proud lighthouse heritage, stretching back over two centuries. As keepers were leaving their posts for the last time, Scotland's Lighthouse Museum commissioned Keith Allardyce to recreate his 1986 survey of the lights and the people who operated them that became the best-selling book, "At Scotland's Edge". Over a period of some 18 months, Keith travelled around Scotland's coastline, visiting some 80 lighthouses from the Isle of Man to Shetland, photographing and recording his thoughts and observations as he charted the last days of Scotland's lighthouse keepers. Produced in conjunction with the Museum, this is a tribute to the end of a remarkable way of life and to the many families in which lightkeeping formed a tradition handed down from generation to generation.
