Photographer's Note

This is the view from "Torr Head" looking north up the coastline and is one of my favorite locations in Northern Ireland.

The tides that run below are some of the most treacherous in the northern isles, creating as they do, whirlpools and strong currents; twice a day the Irish Sea ebbs and flows sending billions of gallons of water between Ireland and Scotland.

This is the closest point from Ireland to Scotland and if you climb the steep road leading up to this view point you will be rewarded with some spectacular views over to the Mull of Kintyre on a clear day.
