Giant's Causeway (Antrim)

Giant's Causeway (Antrim)

The Giant's Causeway is one of nature's true wonders. From a distance it looks like a carpet of enormous steppingstones extending out into the Irish Sea leading across to Scotland. Legend has it that it was built by Ulster warrior Giant Finn McCool so he could walk to Scotland to fight a Scottish Giant. The Giant's Causeway is owned and managed by the National Trust and it is the most popular tourist attraction in Northern Ireland.
Over 40,000 basalt columns, formed some 60 million years ago, are testament to a major stage in the earth's development.
