In preparation for our exhibit opening in June, all the MLitt Museum Studies team took a trip up to Fraserburgh to the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses. We went to look at items we could use for a student-led exhibition for King’s museum that will open in June.
As well as showing us their amazing objects the staff at the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses were also kind enough to give us a tour of the lighthouse at Fraserburgh, one of the oldest in Scotland! We were taken to the room the lighthouse worker would live in, sometimes with his whole family and learned a great deal about the lives of these men.
We were taken to the top of the lighthouse, where we were able to see the lens in action (without the light on) and got an amazing view from the balcony.
After all that excitement we relaxed with some tea and coffee and we all decided that Neil should pursue a career as a lighthouse keeper as he suits the uniform so well!
We are still in the early stages but will keep you updated with the progress of our exhibition planning!
