Mull of Kintyre Lighthouse



Mull of Kintyre Lighthouse is a lighthouse built at the tip of the Kintyre Peninsula, on the Mull of Kintyre Headland in the Irish Sea, in the county Argyll and Bute in south-west Scotland. It is the second lighthouse to be built in Scotland and guides navigation in the North Channel, separating Ireland from Great Britain. It is now protected as a UK Grade A listed monument.

The lighthouse is managed by the Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) in Edinburgh, Scotland's coastal marine aid organization.
The Mull of Kintyre is approximately 16km from Campbeltown and 13km beyond the village of Southend, the most southerly point on the Kintyre Peninsula.

The former gatehouse buildings are now run as holiday cottages by the National Trust for Scotland. The site is accessible by a small paved road, and parking is available near the lighthouse.
