I was there in 1980, just as it was about to closed as the last manned lighthouse.
The keeper was building a boat for retirement - right up there on the peak.
The air force lifted it off when done
Its now automated.
But the keeper and his wife were a nice couple with enormous calf muscles from climbing up the hill each day.
