Lighthouse by James Winter
Via Flickr:
One of the three lighthouses on the Isle of May

On 8 June 1778 Robert Stevenson, the noted Scottish civil engineer, was born.

The first of the famous family closely associated with lighthouse engineering for nearly two hundred years. He was born in Glasgow, the son of Alan Stevenson who died prematurely in the West Indies. His step-father and father-in-law Thomas Smith had been appointed Engineer to the Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses in 1787. On joining Smith he was entrusted with the superintendence of the building of the Pentland Skerries light for the Commissioners in 1794, having already had experience at Little Cumbrae with his step-father. Robert Stevenson held the post of sole Engineer until 1842 and was responsible for at least fifteen major lighthouses. 

Stevenson is generally credited with the design of the famous Bell Rock Lighthouse, and without doubt was resident engineer, but there is debate on who actually designed it, even nowadays some credit another famous Scottish engineer John Rennie the Elder


You might think all lighthouses are much alike but I beg to differ, having looked through Stevenson’s structures I must say the one in the pic, on the Isle of May is his finest, it’s ornate gothic tower on a castellated stone building was designed to resemble a castle, 24 metres (79 ft) high and with accommodation for three light keepers and their families, along with additional space for visiting officials. The new lighthouse started operating on 1 September 1816, and is now a listed building. Nowadays it is automated.

Perhaps the most famous of the Stevenson family is Robert’s’ grandson Robert Louis Stevenson,  can you imagine the adventures being played out in his head as a youngster being taken around all these lighthouses.
