Former holiday bungalows, Whitehead
Former holiday bungalows, Whitehead
During the early part of the 20th century east Antrim, roughly from Eden to Islandmagee, was a popular spot for wooden holiday bungalows. These two (then vacant and boarded-up and subsequently removed) were beside the Blackhead path (“Old Castle Road” on the Google map) to the lighthouse. For another example (also removed) see D4302 : Former summer house, Islandmagee (July 2009).
The Blackhead Path, Whitehead

A path running from The Banks at Whitehead, along the shore, to the Blackhead Lighthouse (with a parallel path running inland along the cliff and higher ground). It is possible to walk back to Whitehead from the lighthouse, on a surfaced path, via Muldersleigh Hill, McCrea’s Brae and the Islandmagee Road. Steep in places and not suitable for wheelchairs.
