The Lighthouses Bulletin

Main Telephone/Text

0739 866 9450

Please try to keep the phone calls

between 8am and 8pm. Thanks.

Outside of these times a TEXT will get your message onto our radar. Indeed we prefer TEXT. That and the site owner is a dinosaur (with harbourmaster DNA mixed in) and really prefers Harbour Hailing VHF Channel 12 (and fax machines)!

Here are the various ways you can get in touch. Our volunteers are all lighthouse building owners and will do their best to help you…

Landline Telephones

Lighthouse Bulletin HQ: 01241 852127.

Tod Lighthouse Station: 01569 750 629.

This is Tod Head Lighthouse Station. It is a regional HQ for our principal volunteers. Visitors by appointment first please.

Spiritual home of the Lighthouse Bulletin.

Forty years earlier, and six lighthouse postings earlier…

^^ Davaar Island Lighthouse Station ^^

Davaar Island Lighthouse Station was the birthplace of Unique Property Bulletin and its wee sibling, the Lighthouse Bulletin…

^^ Davaar Island ^^

Contributor: Simon Butterworth. Alamy Fee Paid: Here

The tide goes out twice a day and it is possible, with great care to walk cross. A Landrover will make the journey, but please do not try this. We lost a very good friend Len Bennett that way. It was Len who took over our lease on the island and he knew this spit of tidal shingle better than most. But Len got caught out and tragedy ensued.

=> Please, always take care around lighthouse stations. By their very nature, warning ships and sailors of coastal dangers, this means anywhere near lighthouses must be treated with as much respect that you can muster.

In our lifetime from the 1960s to the 2020s we have been lucky and not had an accident. But plenty of folk have. So in the famous words of Michael Conrad:

“Let’s be careful out there”…

The Lighthouse Bulletin

This is a not-for-profit website run by volunteers. 

It is important to clarify, we are NOT an estate agency. NO commission is charged nor sought.

We are just a group of friends who either own or have owned/lived in lighthouse buildings and similar unique properties and we are keen to help other like-minded lighthouse folk to realise their dreams to live in a unique style of home.

Old Fashioned Royal Mail Post

One of our team is usually handcuffed to the mobile phone...

We make best endeavours to have one of our volunteers at the end of this phone between…

8am in the morning to 8pm in the evening

0739 866 9450

This answering service is shared amongst our crew so as to avoid volunteer and/or employee burnout.

But this segment has the old-school method of communication: Royal Mail post…

The Lighthouse Bulletin, Endeavour House, 1 James Street, Arbroath, Angus, D11 1JP.  ^^ Lighthouse Bulletin ~ Main HQ Office ^^. 

Texts are the most reliable at 98% delivery. This is a special number provided for fastest, 24~hours~per~day service when our crew are OFF DUTY.

Replies to TEXTS are aimed at being with you between 1 to 6 hours depending on reception and system coverage...

EMAIL

You can email. We don’t publish email addresses on our websites as these are hoovered up by spam robots and lead to an avalanche of junk mail at this end. It may be worth removing email addresses from your own websites to avoid this electronic plague hitting you too…

All you need to do is telephone or text for the email address. A bit of a hassle, but it saves EMAIL OVERLOAD.

That is presuming the emails get through the internet…

Here at LIGHTHOUSES FOR SALE AND RENT and also… UNIQUE PROPERTY BULLETIN, our email traffic used to be less than 50 a day (in 2012). By last month (July 2023) it averaged 203 per DAY. Yours may be on the rise too. A change is definitely coming with email systems worldwide. When working out a fair and work/life balanced way to provide a 24-hour facility (at the top of this page) we were highly cognisant of this important work: here.

Our regular average of 203 emails a day can go to 400 emails a day; that is 2,800 a week and 145,600 emails a year for example: each time Russian President Putin or former Russian President Medvedev announces nuclear threats and we get an avalanche of folk wanting to buy nuclear bunkers from one of our websites: Click Here.

Or secure communications via…

WHATSAPP

For the safest form of communication so far, we do have a private and dedicated WhatsApp service. You will need to call our landline, 01241 852127 to be joined onto this service as we do not publish the number on any of our websites (to stop the automated spam-robots from hoovering up mobile numbers)…

Post Script….


DON’T MISS A THING

Texting us your favourite

type of unique property and

POST-SCRIPT

On this…

Lighthouse Bulletin 

plus our sister site at…

www.uniquepropertybulletin.org

…we share details of unusual and interesting properties. We are more than happy to make introductions to buyers and sellers.

In addition, we are very happy to help in other ways.

=> As just one very random and seemingly inconsequential example: the Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) use a specific type of masonry paint that is particularly formulated and manufactured for their lighthouse towers.

We have a good working relationship with the paint manufacturer and can arrange for lighthouse property owning friends to secure the same, bespoke paint that is used by the NLB. This is just one example of many ways our modest group of friends who own or lease lighthouse buildings can help each other.

There is normally one of our volunteers on duty if you prefer to telephone. But if that volunteer is driving or otherwise disposed and you don’t attract an answer, PLEASE TEXT your enquiry and we will generally reply within a couple of hours.

Thank you. 


Please note, as this website is free tor you to use and is run as a not-for-profit endeavour by volunteers, we do not normally have a volunteers or members of paid staff to answer the telephones. We have now bought the new HQ building and once that is renovated, we will be employing staff to answer calls. Thank you for your understanding.
