The Blackhead Path, Whitehead

A path running from The Banks at Whitehead, along the shore, to the Blackhead Lighthouse (with a parallel path running inland along the cliff and higher ground). It is possible to walk back to Whitehead from the lighthouse, on a surfaced path, via Muldersleigh Hill, McCrea’s Brae and the Islandmagee Road. Steep in places and not suitable for wheelchairs.
Blackhead Lighthouse :: J4893
The octagonal lighthouse was designed by William Douglass, Engineer to the Commissioners of Irish Lights, and became operational in 1902. Originally painted red, this was changed to white in 1929. The lighthouse was converted to run on electricity on the 23rd September 1965; it now has a light visible for 27 nautical miles. Full time lightkeepers were withdrawn on 31st July 1975. The adjoining house was purchased by the Irish Landmark Trust and is now available to rent as self-catering accommodation.
