A Note from the Artist

Fidra is a currently uninhabited island in the Firth of Forth, 4 kilometres northwest of North Berwick, on Scotland’s east coas. The island is an RSPB Scotland nature reserve.

Like the other islands near North Berwick, Fidra is the result of volcanic activity around 335 million years ago. Fidra consists of three sections; a hill at one end with the lighthouse on it; a low-lying section in the middle, effectively an isthmus; and a rocky stack at the other end.

The lighthouse was first lit in 1885, compulsory powers having been instigated to acquire the land for its construction. In 1970 it became the first Northern Lighthouse Board light to be converted to unattended automatic installation (monitored from St Abbs Head), being electrified with power supplied from the mainland through a submarine cable and equipped with a sealed beam light.
