Murlough Bay

It is considered to be one of the most beautiful bays along the coast of Antrim but is still a kind of insider's tip. The reason is obvious: Murlough Bay is only attainable on a narrow, less frequented minor road - the Torr Head Scenic Route.

An inconspicuous sign points the way to Murlough Bay. The single-lane road leads first along pastures with peacefully grazing sheep. Then it descends steeply towards the coast. The view over the sea gets more spectacular behind every turn. Rathlin Island is within your grasp and even the Scottish Mull of Kintyre is clearly visible in the distance. The striking Fair Head dominates the scenery on the left side. Murlough Bay is best explored by foot. So you better park your car at one of the three parking places.

"Picturesque" describes best the spectacle the nature performs here: shielded from the hinterland by steep rock walls, the hills, falling gently into the sea, are partly wooded and partly covered with luscious green. Gnarled, old trees line the path down. Right in the middle lies a rock formation that looks like a mystic place of worship from ancient times. In northern direction you will reach the remains of colliery cottages. Once the miners families lived here when coal was mined and shipped from Murlough Bay.
