The B150 is a winding road on County Antrim's Islandmagee peninsula. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.

The road starts near the northern end of the peninsula on the B90 loop. Whitehead, at the far end of the B150, is signposted south along that road as it takes a straighter route. We, meanwhile, head east into Mullaghboy and reach a T-junction, where we TOTSO right. The road now winds south through town, with the east coast sometimes visible to the left.

After returning to open country the road zigzags right then left and now follows Middle Road, being the centre of the three north-south roads along the peninsula (the B90 is to the west whilst the unclassified Gobbins Road is to the east). Larne Lough soon becomes visible to the right, then there's a left-right zigzag to stop us from descending; the east coast again becomes visible.

It's not long before we do start descending towards Larne Lough after all. The road enters Ballystrudder and then TOTSOs right into Reids Road; this is signed as a spur of the B90 in this direction although that is not the case and it is correctly signed in the other direction. A mini-roundabout is then reached where we turn left and cannon off the B90 to head south once more. After reaching open country Middle Road comes in from the left.

We continue south and enter Whitehead. There's a badly signed TOTSO right on the nearside of town, which takes us along what appears to be an ordinary residential street (albeit with fields on the right) to a T-junction, where we TOTSO right again. Still skirting the edge of town, we go over the Belfast to Larne railway line and then pass a golf course to end at a T-junction on the A2.
