As an English graduate, I always think it’s very impressive when people actually get to lighthouses. And that looks like a lovely place!
As in sleeping and cooking and listening to the waves crash below? Bloomin, marvellous!
Lucky, lucky you!! Cx
wow! are you staying there overnight? I’ve never stayed in a lighthouse but would absolutely love to… in fact we’re having a (very small/quiet wedding… shhh) soon so that might be an idea :)
How lucky you are – I bet it is lovely and cool and there is a beautiful breeze (or being Shetland it could be cold foggy and blowing a gale) – it’s so hot here ……I don’t like the heat…..so I am envying you right now in more ways than one!
O, like in “Moomin”:)
Oooo…lucky you !
How fabulous — I was in Shetland last week (Leebitton, opposite Mousa), and the weather was just improving as we left. Have a wonderful time!
Toujours de belles vues !
Oooh, how very wild and atmospheric! Good for the soul too.
Oh how fabulous to be in Shetland at this time of year! I hope you enjoy the simmer dim and can get out for some midnight strolls! My birthday is at the end of June, and I was once in Shetland then – we walked in the wee small hours with the curlew and whimbrel burbling away – I think we were staying on Unst that time. This year I’ll be celebrating my birthday (40!!) in Yorkshire, at another good location for knitting: Reeth.
Have a fabulous time op north, and give my love to the puffins if they havent all flown away. I do miss them – I haven’t been to see them in Shetland for years. Looking forward to hearing more about your trip soon….
You’re in Shetland again? Oh you lucky, lucky woman. And in a lighthouse too…
I wish you had taken me with you, I should so like to go there. Have a marvellous time.
OMG Kate, what a beautiful place to be.
There is a lighthouse a bit over an hour away from me, and oh how I would love to live in the old lighthouse keeper’s residence there.
Fresh sea air, and beauty all around, and just the sounds of the sea, and birds, and a bit of a zapping sound at an electrical pole on the path leading to the lighthouse. Hope that’s fixed by now.
Enjoy your time there.

This is the lighthouse and clifftop and old residence, recently used in ythis film.
So jealous! I’m off to Jura…but not til September and I’m already having actual dreams about it.
Lucky you – have a fabulous time. Lots of photos please!!
It looks like a storybook! Or a movie with Colin Firth.
have a wonderful adventure in the lighthouse – can’t wait to hear what brought you there & what you found.
Wow! Have a great holiday – I can’t wait to hear more about it…
