The high plateaus of this region are broken by steep glens and plunging coastal cliffs with dramatic views. The village of Carnlough, ‘place of cairns’ is beautifully situated on the famous Antrim coast road in Northern Ireland. The picturesque harbour below in the town is steeped in history and boasts a magnificent backdrop – Glencoy, the second of the nine Glens of Antrim.
The harbour steps below in Carnlough were used for a scene in season 6 of Game of Thrones. Arya resurfaces from these steps.
Carnlough beach in the photo below is continually monitored to provide a high standard of cleanliness for bathing and swimming. I’ll swim there soon. I need someone to monitor my swimming and I might have other company too. Dolphins and porpoises can be seen along this part of the Northern Irish coast at all times of the year.
