Hexagonal columns, a wishing chair and a giant’s foot? There’s magic at the Giants Causeway. Or should that be science?
The Giant’s Causeway – science or myth? Well, you’ll get different stories about how these hexagonal basalt beauties came into being. Most likely the locals here will tell you that the Irish giant Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn McCool) is responsible for this coastal oddity. But then, we love telling tales round this part of the world.
Pop into one of the local pubs and you’ll hear a whole lot more about this Unesco World Heritage Site. Keep to the Causeway Coastal Route and you’ll be bang in the middle of a bounty of beaches, serious surfing, the crumbling ruins of Dunluce Castle and a perilously high rope bridge called Carrick-a-Rede.
Science or myth? Just magic we reckon.
