My name is Sarah Kerr and I’m the author of The British Lighthouse Trail: A Regional Guide. Since 2012 I have been on a mission to visit every lighthouse in the UK, Isle of Man and Channel Islands.
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.
Since 2018 I have been the Events Coordinator for the Association of Lighthouse Keepers (ALK). ALK membership is open to anyone with an interest in lighthouses.
Favourite things: lighthouses and the coast, writing, cider in the sunshine, discovering new and beautiful places in the UK.
Favourite lighthouse: The more remote the better. Particular favourites are Sule Skerry, Hyskeir, The Needles…The list is endless.
