... Derry may be a walled city, but those walls are pretty puny compared to the ones I’ve seen surrounding many ancient cities on the European continent. And they don’t surround much of historic or aesthetic interest. The most interesting building is Saint Columb’s Cathedral, the hilltop Anglican cathedral that was the first post-Reformation cathedral built in the British Isles.

includes a guided visit, audio guide, visitors center……and a whole bunch of
other things that I have absolutely no interest in. So I strategically got out

... for about 5 or 10 minutes. On to Ballintoy, a magical little harbour. We would have missed Ballintoy, had it not been for our friendly jeweller at Ballcastle. He told us that most people bypassed it, but that the narrow, winding road down to the harbour was really worth a stop.
It was then on to the impressive natural rock formations of bassalt, which look man-made - The Giant's Causeway. The Giant's Causeway was better than I had ...
