The cliffs and coastal areas of Antrim are quite breathtaking in their beauty. They may not be the highest cliffs in the world - but they certainly count as the set that last longest in the memory.

An obvious highlight, apart from just driving along the coast road, is a visit to the 'Giant's causeway'. This natural feature is so famous because it appear so unnatural. The pillars of rock appear to have been cut into geometically perfect forms.

Another highlight, for some, is the Carrick-a-rede ropebridge that is slung from the mainland to a stack just offshore. Open March to october, it will set you back two pounds 50p to walk across it. I can't say that i found it in the least scary, and nobody has ever fallen off it. Some do however 'freak out', and refuse to walk on it or, worse still, refuse to make the return walk and have to be taken off the island stack by boat.

On a clear day the views from this point are stunning.
