Approaching Skerryvore Lighthouse

Approaching Skerryvore Lighthouse for ILLW 2011.


On Yacht "Contender" anchored next to a lighthouse.



Lismore Lighthouse. Have operated from here during lighthouse weekend 2009, 2010



Rubha Nan Gall Lighthouse.


Ardtornish Lighthouse. In the sound of Mull, this carries a brass plaque and admiralty number, qualifying as a lighthouse.

Activated this 2010, 2011.


In 2012 we attempted Dubh Artach Lighthouse, but wave height prohibited this, so second choice was Ruvaal Light on island of Islay.

Overnighted at Colonsay Island tied alongside other boats in the tiny harbour. No room to anchor. Contender is the boat to right.

above: Off St Kilda the week before Lighthouse weekend. St Kilda is in the Atlantic west of Scotland.

above@ on way back from St Kilda, in Sound of Barra - dolphins playing alongside us.

Now, where is home?

Contesting is another interest. Here's CPSARC entry to IOTA 2012 as GM2T (see that here on QRZ too)

And here's same contest group as MM0CPS/P at VHF Field Day


Here's the 2013 ILLW lighthouse we went to. Its on the island of Little Cumbrae.
