Carnlough to Cranny Falls


Some views of the fishing village of Carnlough on the Antrim Coast.

The arch above with the sign for a motorcycle run and family fun day was the old railway line to the harbour, delivering stones from the quarries in the hills above the town.

The view below is taken from the former rail line.
You can see the limestone quarries in the hills.




Another view back towards the archway from the other direction

This was the Mighty Atom!
A cute flower planter!

we hiked to Cranny Falls...

It is like a magical fairy glen tucked into the hills... hence the name Cranny as in the saying 'every nook and cranny'.


More on the Glens tomorrow!

  6. Wow, what beauty surrounding you. the old rail line is real interesting, they mine limestone close by here. I would like to have one of those boats. When I approach the idea with family they describe it as a hole that can never be filled, a constant money problem.

  20. I like your views of Cranny! I had hoped to go to Ireland while I was visiting England this summer but never made it - so I have a good excuse to go back!

  21. What a lovely set of shots. I especially like the pic with the flowers in the foreground - beautiful composition with the marina and hills behind. And the skies - gorgeous!

  22. Your photos prove I should visit Ireland. Viewing them was such a pleasure, I could feel it in my heart. I believe there is some Irish in my ancestry...if I recall correctly, one of my grandmothers was half Irish, half Dutch. So that explains the catch in my breath and the glow in my chest at the sight of your photos. Thank you for adding so much to my day.
