The story goes that Giants causeway was created by the steps of giants.
The rocks are various heights but in the perfect octagon!
They are naturally formed from the ocean and no one knows or can understand how.

When we finished viewing the castle with its fine ramparts and cannons, we got back in the car and put the address for tonight's B&B into the Garmin. Although I expected to go back down the major highway for at least a bit of the trip, she took us off on a couple of odd routes on the way up to Portstewart. It was very hard to tell if we ...
Such a long but exciting last day in Northern Ireland. It involved more driving than anything. We woke up and headed north to see the Giants Cause Way. It is one of the geographic wonders of the world, and legend has it the stones were carved by local giant Finn McCool, and that mystical creatures of folklore fashioned them into Hexagons. We took the trip down the hill and sat on the stones and got to look out ...
