Giant’s Causeway

We’ve recently returned from a whistle stop visit to Northern Ireland including a couple of days in Belfast and one day on the North Antrim coast which is perhaps most renowned for the world famous Giant’s Causeway.

This spectacular landscape is made up of over 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. Science explains that this geological wonder is the result of ancient volcanic activity, but I prefer to believe the more romantic stories of myth and legend which tell of the mighty giant Finn McCool who carved the causeway out of the rocky coastline.

Whatever you choose to believe, the Giant’s Causeway is a truely remarkable place and definitely deserves it’s place on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
