The Northern Lighthouse Board is responsible for maintaining the lighthouses and navigational buoys situated around more than 6000 miles of coastline. The upkeep of these navigational aids is a year round operation involving cleaning, painting and checking electrics.
Dougie Vipond joins the crew of one of the NLB’s two ships – the NLV Pole Star - as it carries out maintenance work on two buoys at Loch Linnhe and the Sound of Mull.
