Dark Hedges /The Giants Causeway.
The Dark Hedges is a pathway of around 150 beech trees leading up to Gracehill House, built in 1775 by James Stuart and named after his wife Grace Lynd. The hedges are said to be visited by a ghost called the Grey Lady, who travels down the road and crosses from tree to tree.
Giants Causeway, Northern Ireland (Country Antrim), during Storm Dennis. An area of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed as the result of ancient volcanic fissure eruption. The legend surrounding the Causeway says that the Irish giant Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool), from the Fenian Cycle of Gaelic mythology, was challenged to a fight by the Scottish giant Benandonner. Fionn accepted the challenge and built the causeway across the North Channel so that the two giants could meet.
