THERE has been a new walk opened on one of Ireland's most iconic headlands in The Glens of Antrim, The cultural heart of The Causeway Coastal Route.
Both of its names, Benmore and Fairhead, certainly reflect one of the most dramatic headlands in all of Ireland.
Benmore from the Gaelic An Bhinn Mhór, means the great cliff or peak, which at 196 metres of mainly vertical volcanic walls it certainly is!. Fairhead also describes this remarkable place, with breathtaking views across the Sea of Moyle to Rathlin Island, The Hebrides, Mull of Kintyre and mainland Scotland.
Situated within the 'The Glens of Antrim, known as the 'Cultural Heart of the Causeway Coastal Route', Fairhead, which has long offered some of the best rock climbing in Europe, now offers a range of awe inspiring short and medium distant walks.
