Ramble on Rathlin


Built in 1847, the East Light offers fantastic views across the Rathlin Sound to Ireland, Scotland and the Western Isles. Our walk will consist of minor roads, grassy paths and rolling headlands. Beginning in the picturesque Church bay it is a circular walk reaching our lighthouse destination before descending back down to the harbour.

Hidden Clachan's, shipwreck stories, golden hares and even Robert the Bruce called this corner of the Island their home.

Did you know! Some of the world's first radio signals were sent from near the East Lighthouse. Our guide Kevin will entertain and enthral with stories of Elizabethan treasure, ghastly massacres and Scandinavian vikings.

*Ferry travel not included*

*In the event of cancelled ferry crossings (at the Skipper's discretion), all bookings will be refunded*
