Little Goat Island
Well, I'd never heard of this one until we went sailing past it in the fog on our boat trip out to the Fastnet. It lies on the westernmost side of the westernmost island in the little archipelago that lies between Baltimore and Crookhaven.
Like Baltimore, it is another unlit stone beacon, not a lighthouse.It is 25feet high and was built as a job lot with the Copper Point beacon in 1864 (see previous entry) 51°29.031'N 009°36.169'W
