Antrim Carnfunnock Country Park (25mins) History Blackhead Lighthouse was built and its light first exhibited in 1902. The lighthouse also had an explosive fog signal when it first began operation. Blackhead Lighthouse would have guided many famous vessels during Belfast's golden age of shipping, including the ill-fated Titanic. Blackhead Lighthouse was converted to electric operation in 1965. Lightkeepers lived at the station until 1975. There's a lovely coastal path that takes you up past sea caves and coves to the Gobbins or south to the Victorian seaside resort of Whitehead. The Blackhead Lighthouse and Coastal Walk is approximately 2.4 kilometres (from Whitehead to the lighthouse and back). Belfast Lough is an Area of Special Scientific Interest famed for its bird population. This lighthouse marks the North East approaches to Belfast Lough. It's also a significant passing light for North/South offshore traffic. It is one of 70 lighthouses operated by the Commissioners of Irish Lights around the coast of Ireland and continues to provide a vital role in maritime safety today. THINKING OF SELLING OR RENTING?
