The Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) is the lighthouse authority for Scotland and the Isle of Man. The NLB was formed by Act of Parliament in 1786 as the Commissioners of Northern Light Houses.

In Salutem Omnium is the motto of the Northern Lighthouse Board, meaning For the Safety of All.

The Commissioners of Northern Light Houses most famous engineer was Robert Stevenson, whose sons David, Alan, and Thomas followed their father into the profession. The Stevenson dynasty built the majority of the Northern lights, in some exceptionally challenging locations. Their lights were some of the engineering masterpieces of their time, notably those at Bell Rock, Skerryvore, and Muckle Flugga.
