About Carnlough

The harbour was built by the Marchioness of Londonderry around 1850. Limestone was exported from here until 1945 when the nearby Glencloy quarries closed. The Eglinton Lime Company of Glenarm used the harbour for several years until the late 1950s, when silting became a problem.

The harbour today offers moorings for leisure and small fishing craft.
