Nantouar

Nantouar, France

This was formerly the front light of the Passe de l'Ouest range, with Kerjean serving as the rear light. The range guided mariners through the west side of the entrance to the bay and harbor of Perros-Guirec. When active, the fixed white light had a focal plane height of 10 meter. It was deactivated in 1976 when the Kerjean Light (FRA-326) was converted to a directional light. The building was sold at auction in 1994.
