The event has passed.

Sunday 3rd September 7:30 pm

Bella Bathurst, Author & Photojournalist, and Tidespace Writer-in-Residence
 will be in conversation about her book ‘The Lighthouse Stevensons’. Described by The Times as ‘One of the best biographers of her generation’, Bella Bathurst’s definitive book, was the first of many. Her most recent, the brilliant ‘Field Works’ featured as part of Tidespaces LAND series.

Robert Louis Stevenson may have been the most famous of the Stevensons but he was by no means the most productive. The Lighthouse Stevensons, all four generations of them, were devoted to the seemingly impossible task of lighting the dark and dangerous seas around Scotland. Immediately after the incredible feat of completing his first lighthouse at Bell Rock, Robert Stevenson created the nearby lighthouse at the Mull of Galloway. Little Ross Lighthouse in Kirkcudbright Bay was built by his son Alan, which was lit 180 years ago this year.
