Episode 51 Sources: The Missing Lighthouse Keepers of Eilean Mor

It’s December 1900, and three men go missing while working as keepers at the Eilean Mor Lighthouse. To this day, their disappearance is an unsolved mystery. Stories of what happened span everything from a rogue wave to a murder-suicide to mystical bird transformations. In this episode, we discuss the days leading up to the disappearance, the investigation, and what (we think) really happened.
