Rathlin Island Rue Point Lighthouse

I like lighthouses you can touch. This is on the south point of the island reached by a 90 minute walk down a track, then across a field (full of sheep droppings), past numerous seals basking and finally a little paved track leading over the rocks. Great views of the Northern Island and Scottish coastlines.
Built in 1915, destroyed by a storm in 1917, temporary light erected before this beauty was born in 1921.
