Bloody Foreland

One of the nice things about lighthouse hunting is that it takes you off the beaten track to places you wouldn't normally visit. So it was with Bloody Foreland, on the very north-west tip of Ireland. Driving along the N69, you branch off westwards at Gortahork and then follow the signs for Bloody Foreland. Eventually the road becomes a track which becomes a series of potholes which brings you to a gate on top of the promontory. Fortunately the beacon is visible from there, casting its lonely light over towards Tory Island. 55° 09.5´ N 8° 17.0´ W should get you to the point I got to.

The white concrete hut is 12 feet in high and sits at an elevation of 47 feet. It has a flashing white and green light, dependent on the sector
