About me

Me with Bell Rock lighthouse and The Northern Lighthouse Board's boat "Pharos"
Me with Bell Rock lighthouse and The Northern Lighthouse Board’s boat “Pharos”

Here’s a little bit about me.

My name is Sarah

I live on the north coast of Scotland (with views of Dunnet Head lighthouse flashing at night) having moved from London in 2013. I live with my husband, Bob, who I met on my 2012 lighthouse tour, and our young son and daughter. I was born and brought up on the Isle of Wight and lived in Weymouth and Southampton during my student years.

Occupation: I am Communications Manager for Dementia Friendly Communities, a charity based in East Sutherland in Scotland.

Favourite things: lighthouses and the coast, writing, cider in the sunshine, travelling to new and beautiful places in the UK.

Favourite places: home, the Isle of Wight, anywhere with a lighthouse!

Favourite lighthouse: I’m not even going to try! The more remote the better though.

  1. Hi Sarah!

    I love to visit lighthouses in the UK as well!

    I can´t explain why but when I am arriving at a lighthouse, my soul trembles. It is such a powerful place!

    Thanks for your beautiful blog. I will consider your list when planning my next trips!

    Best wishes,


    1. Hi Dani,

      Thanks for your message. It’s always good to hear from likeminded lighthouse fans.

      The list on the site was my original list, which was missing a lot and didn’t include lighthouses on islands. The more comprehensive list that I now work with can be found in my book The British Lighthouse Trail: A Regional Guide. There is a page about the book on this site if you were interested in finding out more.

      Thanks again for your kind comments and for taking the time to get in touch.

      Best wishes,
