Incredible and scary watching this video. I stayed in this lighthouse the last time I time I was on Fair Isle!
"On Monday Fair Isle experienced some of the highest seas in the
world with waves battering the islands lighthouse destroying a “break
water” wall." This wall was 121 years old!
Dave Wheeler wrote on his facebook page on Sunday: "The biggest seas currently on the planet are
going to be west of Orkney over the next 60 hours. They will be
monstrous, with a height of 48+feet. Whilst grand for driving 'stuff'
ashore, its simply 'no witty' to be out in. Please STAY SAFE, take NO
CHANCES. You won't get a second one from mother nature."
