But now? TIL of the Flannan Isles Lighthouse, known for the mysterious disappearances of its keepers in 1900. It was located off the West coast of Scotland, surrounded by the violent Atlantic… The Outer Hebrides is an archipelago that hugs the west coast of Scotland at the eastern edge of the Atlantic ocean. The mystery of Flannan Isle Lighthouse was first discovered when the steamer Anchtor made note in its log that the light was not working in bad weather conditions. Flannan Isles Lighthouse located at the highest point on Eilean Mòr, one of the Flannan Isles in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. At least one of these men had previously been fined for improper rain gear storage. This was at the very dawn of the 20th century, and it sparked one of the most unsettling mysteries at the time. The fate of MacArthur, although required to stay behind to man the lighthouse, can be guessed to be the same. Having been around lighthousess quite regularly you can see how it could happen during huge storms. Later that day: “Storm still raging, wind steady. Wind shifted west by north. One of my favorite mysteries as a kid but as an adult I think they all got hit by a surge and washed out. Press J to jump to the feed. Storm ended, sea calm. The three keepers, Ducat, Marshall and the Occasional have disappeared from the Island… The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that the accident must have happened about a week ago.”. Flannan Isles Lighthouse is a lighthouse near the highest point on Eilean Mòr, one of the Flannan Isles in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of mainland Scotland. Three men, James Ducat, Thomas Marshall, and Donald MacArthur operated and maintained the lighthouse. All the dramatic log entries about crying etc are just rumours. It is best known for the mysterious disappearance of its keepers in 1900. They may take their name from Saint Flannan, the seventh-century Irish preacher and abbot. ._33axOHPa8DzNnTmwzen-wO{display:block;padding:0 16px;width:100%}.isNotInButtons2020 ._33axOHPa8DzNnTmwzen-wO{font-size:14px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:32px;text-transform:uppercase} One of the keepers was swept out by a freak wave of falling debris, the 2nd keeper called for the 3rd who got up in a hurry not putting on his raingear and the two keepers got swept into sea trying to rescue the 1st keeper. The last lighthouse keeper to say on the island was in 1973 and now the lighthouse is electronically controlled and only 2-3 trips are made to repair and maintain the lighthouse. Yeah, I've read about this story extensively from reports made at the time, and the rogue wave theory is probably correct. Eilean Mor is an island 20 miles out in the Atlantic off Lewis. The lighthouse was manned by three men: Thomas Marshall, James Ducat, and Donald MacArthur, with a rotating fourth man spending time on shore. Without that bit of info, though, I'd probably go with the "washed out to sea" theory.

Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxXCTFQ-BiM, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xC3pZaDMJ_8. The Superintendent of Lighthouses, Robert Muirhead came with them to do a routine check of the lighthouse and speak to the men. Mr Love said: “It was only after 1912, when English poet Wilfrid Wilson Gibson published his epic, Flannan Isle, that the story began to assume such an air of mystery, speculation, even intrigue. On Eilean Mòr, the men scoured every corner of the island for clues as to the fate of the keepers. The Flannan Isles, also known as the Seven Hunters, are a small cluster of islands twenty miles west of the Outer Hebrides. The Mystery begins as a passing ship recorded in there log book that on December 15 with dangerous squalls that broke out near Eilean Mor there was no sign of any light source to help the ship navigate away from the shore lines. Historian and Forteanist Mike Dash wrote a fairly lengthy article on the subject about twenty years ago, which you can dig up here: https://www.academia.edu/251736/The_Vanishing_Lighthousemen_of_Eilean_Mor. Cannot go out. What really happened to the mysteriously vanished lighthouse keepers of the Flannan Isles—a true story, evocative of The Shining. On a beautifully island off the coast of Scotland, you’ll find a small, 75-foot lighthouse, built in the 1880s. In 1895 Construction began of a 75 ft high lighthouse on the north eastern uninhabited island of Eilean Mor located 20 miles west of Lewis Island. There was no partly eaten meal. A set of oilskins was found, suggesting that one of the keepers had left the lighthouse without them, which was surprising considering the severity of the weather on the date of the last entry in the lighthouse log. There's data on these monsters from oil rigs in the north sea. ._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ{border:1px solid transparent;display:block;padding:0 16px;width:100%;border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-body);border-radius:4px;box-sizing:border-box}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:hover{background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-primaryButtonTintedEighty)}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ._2FebEA49ReODemDlwzYHSR,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:active,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:hover{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText);fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText)}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ._2FebEA49ReODemDlwzYHSR,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:active{background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-primaryButtonShadedEighty)}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:disabled,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ[data-disabled],._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ[disabled]{background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-primaryButtonTintedFifty);color:rgba(var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText),.5);fill:rgba(var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText),.5);cursor:not-allowed}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:active,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:disabled,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:hover,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ[data-disabled],._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ[disabled]{border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-body)}._1O2i-ToERP3a0i4GSL0QwU,._1uBzAtenMgErKev3G7oXru{display:block;fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-body);height:22px;width:22px}._1O2i-ToERP3a0i4GSL0QwU._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_,._1uBzAtenMgErKev3G7oXru._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{height:14px;width:14px}._2kBlhw4LJXNnk73IJcwWsT,._1kRJoT0CagEmHsFjl2VT4R{height:24px;padding:0;width:24px}._2kBlhw4LJXNnk73IJcwWsT._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_,._1kRJoT0CagEmHsFjl2VT4R._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{height:14px;width:14px}._3VgTjAJVNNV7jzlnwY-OFY{font-size:14px;line-height:32px;padding:0 16px}._3VgTjAJVNNV7jzlnwY-OFY,._3VgTjAJVNNV7jzlnwY-OFY._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;text-transform:uppercase}._3VgTjAJVNNV7jzlnwY-OFY._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{font-size:12px;line-height:24px;padding:4px 9px 2px;width:100%}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs{font-size:14px;line-height:32px;padding:0 16px}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs,._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;text-transform:uppercase}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{font-size:12px;line-height:24px;padding:4px 9px 2px;width:100%}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs:hover ._31L3r0EWsU0weoMZvEJcUA{display:none}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs ._31L3r0EWsU0weoMZvEJcUA,._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs:hover ._11Zy7Yp4S1ZArNqhUQ0jZW{display:block}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs ._11Zy7Yp4S1ZArNqhUQ0jZW{display:none}._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a{width:100%}._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a:hover ._31L3r0EWsU0weoMZvEJcUA{display:none}._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a ._31L3r0EWsU0weoMZvEJcUA,._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a:hover ._11Zy7Yp4S1ZArNqhUQ0jZW{display:block}._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a ._11Zy7Yp4S1ZArNqhUQ0jZW{display:none} Captain Harvie sent a telegram to the Northern Lighthouse Board dated 26 December 1900, stating: “A dreadful accident has happened at the Flannans.
