Mull of Kintyre Lighthouse

The Mull of Kintyre is the southwestern-most tip of the Kintyre Peninsula, immortalised by the 1977 hit song "Mull of Kintyre" by Paul McCartney's band of the time, Wings. It's 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.
