    If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

    That’s the opposite of what most people say. I’ve heard people say the only reason they can watch these videos about these disturbing true stories is because of how the guys banter in between (without disrespecting the people in the story itself).

    Usually I'm all up for the crazier theories but as a Scot living on the east coast I've seen the sea do some insane stuff. I know the sea around the west coast is way worse, and on a small island it could definitely get really bad. They 100% just got swept out to sea, though I do love a good Kelpie story.

    the vignette effect that you give while exporting a video is making Shanes face blurred especially in the wide-angle frame. either adjust his sitting position or adjust the camera.

    Postmortem: so my theory is they bailed. Like shane said but without the love triangle. Firstly the job didn't seem to have many benefits, psychological fatigue, isolation, it must have gotten to them so why not just stage a disappearance. The Mackenzie guy could have been in on it too. Because not reporting something for two weeks is suspicious. Like we'd understand some days but two weeks? Idk he just seems like he's hiding something. I think the disappearance was staged by the victims.
