Spectacular scenery on one of the nicest drives in Northern Ireland. Biggest drawback can be exeptionally slow especially in good weather as there are few places to overtake and can be a lot of "Sunday Drivers" on the road.

I hadn't driven along this road in years and I had forgotten how truly beautiful the scenery is. No wonder Game of Thrones came to Northern Ireland. Amazing views from Carnfunnock out towards the sea also.

Drove along this road while going round the coast. Lots of beautiful sights on this road and plenty places you can stop and take beautiful photos. This road is a must for any traveller who wants to take in the sights of Northern Ireland. Spectacular.
