Could you be a Lighthouse Keeper?

We need you to join our Lighthouse Keeper’s Bootcamp! Sign up at the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses and Fraserburgh Heritage Centre on Saturday 14th May and see if you have what it takes to become a keeper.


For this year’s Festival of Museums we’re helping you to get hands-on experience of what life was really like on a lighthouse!

Come along and gain the vital skills to keep our seafarers safe! Can you climb to the very top of our lighthouse? Rescue someone from a shipwreck? Learn to tie knots? Work a lens mechanism? Make a weather vane? Or use a Marconi Radio?
When you’ve finished the Bootcamp you’ll get your official certificate to prove you’re an honorary lighthouse keeper.

Museum of Scottish Lighthouses and FraserburghHeritage Centre are doing a special joint family ticket of £12 for the day so there’s never been a better time to see if you could be a keeper.

This event is part of the Scotland wide Festival of Museums taking place 13 – 15 May 2016. Visit www.festivalofmuseums.com for more details
