I made my way further “back” the coastal road, passing by stunning scenery and many different cows, sheep and horses.
View of the Carrick a Rede bridge – this one was on the to-do-list for the next day! Sheep Island in the back.
And here we are – Torr Head!
This headland was important in the 1800s for recording the passage of transatlantic ships, relaying the information back to Lloyds of London. It was often the last hope for Scottish clans beckoning aid from allies in Argyllshire. The walls and ruins of Altagore cashel date back to the sixth century. Long before the early Christian church and Irish clans came here, the headland was already remarkable. (Discover Northern Ireland)
The view from the top of the headland is spectacular – all across to the Mull of Kintyre (Scotland) – this is the shortest distance between Northen Ireland and Scotland.
