    Stop At: Negril Lighthouse, West End, Jamaica

    Negril Lighthouse was built in 1894 1.5 miles south southeast of the westernmost tip of the island of Jamaica by the French company Barber & Bernard. It is one of the earliest concrete lighthouses.

    This Lighthouse is situated at south Negril Point which is at the extreme western end of the Island. Built before the turn of the last century, the Negril Lighthouse has served the people of Jamaica since 1895. The Lighthouse, located a way out on the West End Road, past Rick's Cafe, is a 100-foot tall structure and powered by solar energy. The power source was converted back in 1985, just a decade before it's 100th anniversary. The Negril landmark still guides ships safely around Jamaica's western edge. The Lighthouse has an automatic white light which flashes every two seconds.

    The Negril Lighthouse was built in 1894 by the French Company Bubbler & Bernard, on a tank 14 feet deep, which is kept filled with water. This is to keep the Tower balanced and secured in the event of an earthquake. The Tower which is built inland is cylindrical and has an elaborate light enclosed in a metal and glass protector on top of which is a wind-wane.

    There is no admission charge to visit the lighthouse as of this writing. It is open 9 am to sunset daily Now Close off to Public but can be viewed from the entrance. There are 103 stairs that will take you to the top for a bird's eye view.

    The Lighthouse is located at latitude 18° 15' north and longitude 78° 23' west.

    Duration: 25 minutes

    Stop At: Westmoreland Parish, Westmoreland Parish, Jamaica

    On the northern side of the main road between the towns of Savanna-la-mar and Black River, is the Ackendown Castle ruin. According to a plaque on the inner wall, the castle was built by Archibald Campbell (1781-1833) of the family of Auchenbreck in Argyll in Scotland. An inscription in lead on a stone on one of the inner walls of the link joining the two towers reads as follows:
    Here lie the remains of Archibald Campbell of the family of Auchenbeck in Argyll in Scotland third son of the Hon. John Campbell of New Hope in this parish died 21st April 1833 aged 52 years. This Castle which is now His monument was built by him.

    The castle consists of the stone remains of an eastern and western tower connected by what is said to have been an underground passage. The style in which the masonry has been constructed is unusual in Jamaica—rather more medieval in character, making the castle quite unique in this respect.

    The Ackendown Castle ruin was declared as a national monument by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust on December 21, 2006.

    Duration: 35 minutes

    Stop At: Westmoreland Parish, Westmoreland Parish, Jamaica

    Located near to the Courthouse in Savanna-La-Mar, Westmoreland is a Corinthian fluted Cast iron Fountain. This beautiful and unique Fountain was presented to the town of Savanna-La-Mar in 1887 by E. J. Sadler, a planter from Westmoreland.

    Rising from the base of the Fountain are eight iron columns which give the structure an octagonal appearance. On each of the eight columns is an arch, and over each arch is a plaque with a pelican motif. Inscribed on the pelican motif is the admonition to Keep the pavement dry.
