Killantringan & Knock Bay

A wild sandy beach on the west coast of the Rhins.

A splendid beach that with Knock Bay to the north creates a stretch of sand almost a mile long. On the headland to the south stands Killantringan Lighthouse, built in 1900, but now decommissioned. In the bay beyond it, at low tide, you can see the wreck of the Craigantlet, a container ship that ran aground here on 26 February 1982. The crew were airlifted by helicopter to safety. The beach can be reached by car from the B738 with parking off the road to the lighthouse. Alternatively there is good coastal footpath to the beach from Portpatrick three miles to the south.
