Rathlin East Lighthouse (2)

Reached by a 20 minute walk from the village. (Keep going up the hill away from the harbour, heading north) A bit disappointed that a stone wall prevents you getting closer. Robert the Bruce allegedly had his spider encounter in a cave nearby. Built 1856. Also known as Altacarry Head, there is a low light here also, the white domed structure that can be seen between the light and the keeper's cottage in the top picture.
