Brownsman is what you would call a proper island, as it is one of the largest in the Outer Farnes and has a covering of peaty soil in which plants are able to grow. There are also the remains of the old square beacon lighthouse and a cottage which was built in 1810. The cottage was the one used by the Darling family who moved there when the Staple tower lighthouse closed down. It is now used as a home by the National Trust wardens who protect the Farne Island wildlife. Brownsman has huge numbers of kittiwakes, shags, guillemots and a sprinkling of fulmars that nest on the southern cliffs. The peaty soil on the top of the island is honeycombed with the burrows of puffins, which often line the cliffs along with hundreds of sandwich terns. It makes an impressive sight when the whole colony takes to the air at once. Although Brownsman is not as open to the sea as many of the other islands, it has still had six recorded ships wrecked on it since 1795, three of them involving the loss of life. On 3 December 1795 the sloop Friendship of Bo’ness was lost and four of her crew were drowned. On 2 February 1823 the wooden brig George and Mary was lost with all hands, while on passage for London with a cargo of coal; she sank after striking the eastern point of Brownsman during a severe easterly gale.
