The Longstone Lighthouse was made famous by Lighthouse Keeper William Darling and his daughter Grace who bravely rescued survivors of the Forfarshire shipwreck in 1838. After spotting nine survivors clinging to the rocks from her bedroom window Grace and her father set out on the lighthouse boat, rescuing all nine survivors and caring for them in the lighthouse until the storm ended.
