Ballycastle - On the Trail of Danny McGill


The audio clips have been temporarily removed; they ought to be left in place as 'a taster of what is still to come'. Apparently the guides were stored in an inappropriate location.

When the physical trail is complete, this virtual site will go live to provide you with some additional heritage information via audio clips to help you to enjoy the natural environment, the architecture and the heritage story of Ballycastle.

Some of the signage is now in place 
and the newly surfaced river path is open

The River Walk begins behind Moyle District Council
 offices on Mary Street, Ballycastle

Just follow the signs

If you have a smart phone, just scan the virtual trail guide icon
on each panel for an audio or video guide to that part of the trail.

Project is behind schedule: "All works are due to be completed before Easter 2012."

A small glitch in the press release (it's been reported): "The Ballycastle Heritage Trail commenced in November 2012"

For those who also want to go 'off the beaten track' 
they can head east from the town, past the golf course, 
along Carrickmore Road - the old colliery road - and then over
rougher terrain to Fair Head. Look out for this little twite that Danny spotted.
