Coastguard Lookout

Due to its being a headland with good elevation and visibility, a Coastguard Lookout was stationed on Ramore Head in the past. It stood at the Northern end of the headland and was used during World War II to watch over the convoys and other shipping moving through the North Channel on their way to or from Lough Foyle or the North Atlantic and ports further South in both Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

It would also have been used to keep a lookout for German submarines trying to slip into those critical sea lanes. It was closed and demolished when the Coastguard presence in Portrush changed and finally left Portrush during the latter part of the 20th Century.
