NLV Pharos at Oban Depot
NLV Pharos at Oban Depot
The NLB has operated a base in Oban since 1904. The maintenance ship NLV Pharos was berthed here at the time of our visit, complete with accompanying helicopter. Both are used for regular maintenance visits to the lighthouses and buoys of Scottish waters, delivering stores and equipment and carrying out buoyworking. It is also used for the statutory inspection of navigation aids on Scottish oil rigs.
