Northern Ireland

We left Belfast yesterday morning, and are now staying in the Antrim coast town of Ballycastle for a few nights. The town is famous for being the place the world’s first telegraph was sent. Robert the Bruce also went into hiding on the island just off the mainland.

We have a three-storey house all to ourselves, overlooking the harbour! You can see Scotland from here.

The view from my bedroom this morning:
