Giant's Causeway, Antrim Coast Photos

Giant's Causeway is a vast array of hexagonal blocks formed by volcanic activity. Those stones which lead into the sea resemble a paved road, and thus inspired early people to attribute the road to giants. This memorable scenery can be reached by foot or bus from the cliff top reception center.
