ST JOHNS POINT LIGHTHOUSE

SOOC.

This is in County Down N.I.

There are a couple of St John’s Point Lighthouses in Ulster, but as beautiful as the Donegal one is, it is the County Down which sports the rather individual black and yellow colour scheme. Located at the northern tip of Dundrum Bay, the lighthouse started operation in 1844. Two years later, the captain of the SS Great Britain mistook the new lighthouse for the Chicken Rock Lighthouse on the Isle of Mann and ran aground on Dundrum Bay.
