The Glens of Antrim are known locally in Northern Ireland simply as The Glens. A short hop from the Mull of Kintyre, there are nine glens of Antrim, all of outstanding natural beauty and all explorable from any of the main towns and villages in the Glens, including Ballycastle, Cushendun, Cushendell, Waterfoot and Carnlough.
The inhabitants of the Glens are said to be descended mainly from native Irish, Ulster Scots and Hebridean Scots.
The Lordship of the Glens, from the mid-13th century, first belonged to the Scot-Irish Norman Bissett family. In the mid-16th century it came into the ownership of the MacDonnells of Antrim.
The Causeway Coastal route runs through the Glens and showcases the natural landscapes, from patchwork hills, mountain streams and waterfalls to a dazzling coastal road with majestic cliffs and golden sands.
The Glens of Antrim are famed in poetry, song, myth and magic and each is endowed with an evocative name and weaves its own special magic.
