Light Hearted ep 117 – Jane Outram & Brian Johnson, Sumburgh Head, Scotland

Light Hearted

Listen to the podcast with this player:The lighthouse at Sumburgh Head, established in 1821, is the oldest lighthouse in the Shetland Islands, a part of Scotland. The light station is on a dramatic promontory at the southern tip of Mainland, Shetland, the largest of the islands and the fifth largest island in the British Isles. It was designed by Robert Stevenson, one of the most prolific and celebrated lighthouse engineers in the world. The tower is 56 feet tall, and the light is about 300 feet, or 91 meters, above the sea. Because Sumburgh Head is exposed to severe weather conditions, the walls of the lighthouse were built twice as thick as usual. Sumburgh Head Light Station. Wikimedia Commons photo by Ronnie Robertson.The station was automated in 1991 and the former keepers’ houses and the other buildings except for the lighthouse tower are now owned by the Shetland Amenity Trust. The Trust has renovated and restored the buildings to create a world-class visitor attraction.Brian Johnson’s connection with Sumburgh Head Lighthouse goes back many years, beginning when he took a position as Supernumerary Assistant Keeper in 1969. Most of Brian’s lighthouse career was spent as a mechanical technician. He refurbished the foghorn at Sumburgh Head, and on special occasions visitors can watch as he expertly starts the diesel engine to sound the foghorn.Brian Johnson (Shetland Amenity Trust)Jane Outram first visited Shetland for three weeks and is still there 18 years later. She initially worked with the archaeological team of the Shetland Amenity Trust. When a position as a guide at Sumburgh Head became available in 2015, she jumped at the opportunity. Then, in 2019, she made the move to the site supervisor position.Jane Outram (Museum of Scottish Lighthouses)Here is the transcript of the interview:JEREMYD’ENTREMONTI'm speaking today with Jane Outram and Brian Johnson, whoare associated with the Sumburgh Head Lighthouse in Shetland, which is part ofScotland. Thanks so much for joining me today, Jane and Brian. I reallyappreciate it.JANE OUTRAMThank you, it’s great to be here.JEREMYFirst of all, can you explain where the Shetland islandsare and where Sumburgh Head is?JANEYes, of course. So Shetland is an archipelago of around100  islands, 15 of which are inhabited.And we are located approximately a hundred miles off the northern tip ofmainland Scotland and due west of Bergen in Norway. And Sumburgh Head is therocky headland at the southern tip of mainland Shetland. This is where theNorth Sea meets the North Atlantic.JEREMYSo how do people get to Shetland from mainland Scotland?JANESo there are two options for getting to Shetland. You cantake an overnight ferry from Aberdeen, which takes between 12 and 14 hours, oryou can fly. And there are several flights every day from Scottish airports,including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness , and Aberdeen.JEREMYOkay. I was reading that the weather conditions atSumburgh Head can be very harsh. So what sort of weather do you get there?JANEWell, really, the weather here is no worse than any exposed headland in Northern Scotland. Lighthouses by their very nature and purpose tend to be situated in very exposed locations. And I'm often surprised that even on a windy day, how sheltered it can feel within the grounds of Sumburgh Head. But overall, it doesn't rain very much in Shetland. And we have mild winters with temperatures between five to ten degrees warmer than other places on the same latitude. And this is down to the influence of the Gulf Stream. That's not to say that we don't get our fair share of wind here. Margaret Anderson, an assistant keeper's wife, told us that she could remember watching her husband, Leslie, on his hands and knees against the strength of the wind, trying to reach the tower. And Tommy Eunson, who was an occasional keeper at Sumburgh Head from 1968,
