Carnlough Harbour...

Wednesday 13th July 2011

Carnlough is a village on the coastal A2 route along the edge of Co. Antrim.

It has a wonderful enclosed harbour that was built to take the stone from the local quarry away (now closed).  The quarry has grassed over and the high manmade cliffs have many birds nesting.

We went on the lovely walk along Glencloy to Cranny Falls last year.

The harbour is built using the limestone that was quarried in the area.

It is still a busy little harbour with boats coming in and going out.

We bought fish and chips and sat watching the boats and enjoying the smell of the sea.

The end of the tramline that carried the rock down to the harbour (now the walker's path to Glencloy, the disused quarry and Cranny Falls) was above the harbour (where the railings are in the photo).

Lovely views.


Oh my goodness...I think I could LIVE here....just beautiful.
