Lighthouse engine room, Point of Ardnamurchan
Lighthouse engine room, Point of Ardnamurchan
In the foreground is an air compressor. Two of these (with one spare) were needed to operate the fog horn (see NM4167 : Fog horn, Point of Ardnamurchan).
In the background is a generator. Presumably this was used to charge the lamp batteries.
See NM4167 : Machinery House, Ardnamurchan Lighthouse for another view of the engine room.
