Climbing and Upgrading

When Tommy Eunson was born, the Sumburgh Head Lighthouse was 111 years old. Next year it will be 192, while he is now 80 and ... young enough to climb to the top of the tower. The Shetland Amenity Trust asked him to come back to reminisce some 45 years since he worked there. The Trust is spending £5.4 million refurbishing the buildings and creating a visitors' centre as well as preserving the lighthouse and improving the accommodation. What a position to choose for appealing facilities to be ready in 2014.
