Lighthouse Stevensons

Lighthouse Stevensons - Bella Bathurst Absolutely loved this. It's got amazing engineering, Scotland, interesting stuff from the literary Stevenson (who did NOT want to build lighthouses), cool bits about lens improvements etc. Unbelievable that anything could be built on those bits of rock and even more so when you consider the level of technology available to them.
