Located at the most Northerly tip of the Isle of Man, built in 1818 by Robert Stevenson.The Point of Ayre lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse on the Isle of Man.

The cast iron tower was placed at the edge of the sea about 225 m from the main light. In 1950, a concrete tower was built another 230 m seaward, and the historic tower was relocated atop the new tower.
