We have been asked by readers for some additional lifestyle content. Lighthouses are handsome and noble buildings with dramatic locations, but the constructive comments and inbound emails we have received are correct. The visually vertical vernacular throughout this website can be a little monolithic at times. So this current edition we are giving a little of the back-end detail. The odd human being appears in the occasional photograph to complement the lighthouse buildings and towers. Plus some of the back story for various aspects of what appears on this website. To start the ball rolling we are answering a couple of the more regular mailbag questions. Better still, to help old and new readers alike, we now have a dedicated How? & Who? section. As a segue here is a seemingly obscure opening gambit…
WHAT HAS ROBERT CARLYLE GOT TO DO WITH FINDING AND BUYING LIGHTHOUSES?
Read on for the back-story…
Highland Policeman Hamish Macbeth Portrayed By Actor Robert Carlyle
Photo Attribution: BBC
The light hearted rural police drama featured adventures of the eponymous, eccentric character in uniform, inhabited brilliantly by Robert Carlyle. The BBC series was must-watch television on a Sunday night in the 1990’s.
But here’s the thing. In real life there are actual Hamish Macbeths. You are reading the words of one right here and now. Just exactly as I am tapping them out on the old keyboard for you. Curiously, it is an obscure fact that thanks to a Teuchter version of the Old Bill – and a lot of training at police college, this website has been created. If it were not for a real life Hamish Macbeth, then Lighthouses For Sale or Rent would not be here. An unusual turn of fate?
For me, the days of trundling around island police stations detecting who had pinched Christmas trees from the local forestry, or finding felons fishing for salmon with dynamite are long gone. But the lengthy tuition and experience in that career has left an indelible appetite for sleuthing. A mixture Sherlock Holmes and Hamish Macbeth. This transfers very well to truffling out lighthouses for sale. Especially the juicy ones that nobody knows about yet (unless you are a regular reader of our pages here). There is a lot more to this, and perhaps we might visit that at a later date. Indeed, if any of our readers would like an additional “Lighthouse Lifestyle” section, as suggested by some of our regulars, please let us know: click here.
Just for now, and to show a little of the methodology that we heartily advocate, along with a good dose of detective work, I ran another test search – via our handy Unique Property Manual. Surprise, surprise it yielded nice new beaming result – a secret even the estate agents don’t yet know about. Fact: I am 99% certain that the Rinns of Islay Lighthouse Keepers Houses will be coming up for sale during 2016.
