Rathlin West Lighthouse
Built in 1917, a spectacular setting at the far western edge of Rathlin.
The famous Upside Down Lighthouse in that the light is located at the foot of the building. This pic taken from the wall above at the end of a steep path down to the puffin-viewing platform. (The puffins incidentally are gone by mid-August, when I went) Reached either by a long walk or by a trip on the Puffin Bus which meets the ferry and brings people there and back for £5 per head.
