Sailing past the Baltimore Beacon

Sailing past the Baltimore Beacon

On our way back to Baltimore after a nice visit to Cape Clear Island the ferry passed by the Baltimnore Beacon.

I heard that the Beacon had been built by the father of a man who perished on the cliffs where it’s built but it’s origin is rather more mundane. The British Government ordered it built in the mid 1900′s. However I did know it was known as “Lott’s Wife” or the “Pillar of Salt” locally.

More on Wikipedia here and here. Casey’s also have an informative page.
