This was formerly the rear light of the Passe de l'Ouest range, with Nantouar serving as the front light, about 2247 feet away. The range guided mariners through the west side of the entrance to the bay and harbor of Perros-Guirec. In 1976, the Nantouar Light and the range were discontinued, and the Kerjean light became a directional light. The lighthouse is located on a private farm.
