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.
