The Mull of Kintyre

Contact details

The Mull of Kintyre is home to a historic lighthouse, the second commissioned in Scotland, which guides shipping in the intervening North Channel. The single-track road to the Mull of Kintyre is windy and slow-going. The public road ends at the top of the final descent to the lighthouse, where you can park. It's then a short (about a mile) but steep walk downhill to the lighthouse. It's a beautiful, remote, and often very windy spot. From here, the Antrim coast of Northern Ireland is visible on a calm and clear day. Enjoy the views before tackling the slow, steady climb back up.
