Rathlin is unique as an island in Ireland as it has 3 lighthouses. The most visited one is at the place where the RSPB bird sanctuary is, to the west of the island. This is also unique as it is upside-down - well, the light is at the bottom of the structure, if you see what I mean.
To the East of the island we have, um, the East Lighthouse. Hilary reliably informed me it is well known to be haunted - and she herself has heard footsteps when inside once. She also mentioned the strange lights which sometimes can be seen coming towards you on the single-track road which leads to it...apparently the lights never reach you. Spooky...
