Information

7. The assistant keepers’ cottages
The cottages were a short distance from the supply landing but look how far it is to the lighthouse. The keepers rotated 8-hour shifts so that the light was always tended. Imagine walking up the footpath to take your shift in the middle of a dark night with ‘thunder, lightning and rain’ or ‘squalls with hail and rain’. Your map shows how the original footpath took the shortest (and steepest) route to the lighthouse.
The path you will take follows a gentler slope.
Photographs of the original cottages, the landing, ships and shipwrecks are displayed in the visitor centre.
