This is one of the last operational kerosene-fueled lighthouses in the world. Built in 1862 its light can be seen from 23 nautical miles away. It is also one of only two Manual Lighthouses left in the World. It has a spring mechanism that has to be hand cranked every several hours to maintain the sequence of five white flashes every 15 seconds. The lamp burns less than 3 gallons of kerosene oil, with a wick and mantle, per night. And gets painted every 5 years.
Methuselah the 31-year-old golden eagle, which has spent most of its life in captivity, has taken its first flight in the Scottish hills on the 4th March 2008. Methuselah was taken from the wild at the age of four and has spent most of her life in a cage in Yorkshire. Last year she was released into the care of Elite Falconry in Fife, where trainers have been working on her fitness and teaching her to fly again.
