Help us keep the Stevenson Lighthouse open...

BT Mydonate can also reclaim Gift Aid on your behalf.

A very sincere THANK YOU to all who have contributed to our appeal so far.

We are pleased to report that as of July 2016, a large part of the refurbishment work to the 159 year old lighthouse has been completed.

The walkway is one of only two original lighthouse walkways left in Scotland and without these repairs access would have been lost to this historic Thomas Stevenson designed structure.

According to Professor Paxton of Herriot-Watt University, this is apparently the longest remaining example of this kind of structure still in regular use in the UK.

Unfortunately however, our appeal is not yet over, as now we need to raise funds for the next phase of work - refurbishing the outside paintwork Lighthouse.

This work will involve cleaning and re-painting the exterior surface of the lighthouse.

The Trustees would like to hear from any individuals or companies who could possibly help with a financial donation, however large or small, towards the preservation of this iconic landmark. Any donation would attract gift aid as the Eilean Bàn Trust is a registered charity.

The Trust would also very much appreciate hearing from anyone who might be prepared to join the fundraising steering group and help manage the financial campaign.

If you are able to help financially or with your time, please email us (see our contact page - please put 'Appeal' at the start of the subject line), or write to:

The Eilean Bàn Trust, The Pier, Kyleakin, Isle of Skye, IV41 8PL

Thank you for your time.
