  • The Point of Ayre Lighthouse is an active 19th century lighthouse that was first lit in 1818, making it the oldest operational lighthouse on the island.

    The lighthouse is located at the Point of Ayre at the north-eastern end of the Isle of Man, and was designed and built by Robert Stevenson, grandfather of prolific writer and novelist Robert Louis Stevenson.

    The point has shingle and gravel deposited by the strong currents, this changing landcsape forced a smaller light commonly referred to as a ‘winkie’ had to be built 750 feet (230 m) to the seaward side of the main tower in 1899. This was then repositioned a further 250 feet (76 m) in the same direction and for the same reasons in 1950. The ‘winkie’ light was discontinued on 7 April 2010.
