Former Keeper's history


I'm hoping some of the members can help me or guide me in the right direction (pun intended). My grandfather, Douglas Mcgaw was a lighthouse keeper. His died 35 years ago and my granny, his wife Beatrice, pasted away last year. I unfortunately never got my meet my grandad but would love to learn more about his life and postings. My granny often talked about their adventure and I wish I asked more... Home was Oban for them and they spend quite a bit of time in Orkney and Boddam.

I would be very grateful for any information which may help me find out more.
