Exploring the Glens of Antrim...


Whilst taking a gentle hike in the Glens of Antrim above Carnlough in August, we spotted this old farmhouse nestled into the side of the hill and couldn't resist going for a 'nosey' !!!

There was only a bit of a sheep track to follow between a lovely wee hawthorn lane filled with flowering fuschias...



Then  a vehicle track appeared...


... and as we rounded the bend, we saw the old deserted farmhouse and outbuildings, now used for sheep pens.



There was a green barn too...


Nothing very exciting but fun all the same!
