About this title


The expression "paraffin-oiler" was the old nickname for a Scottish lightkeeper and in this book the author, a serving lightkeeper, provides a light-hearted and true account of life in the Lighthouse Service. Dealing in turn with each coastal region of Scotland, the author provides detail about the construction of lighthouses and the development of the Service. Through personal reminiscences and tales from colleagues, he builds up a vivid account of day-to-day life and the characters involved in this solitary occupation.
