Torr Road

If it is off the beaten track your clients are looking for then a trip along the Torr Road is a must do

The Torr Road may be a slight detour off the Causeay Coastal Route however it gives those who hear of its beauty a chance to see another side to our coast, hidden to most travellers.

Its rugged coast, spectacular views over the Mull of Kintyre, crashing waves and historical intrigue will not disappoint. Torr head is an epic place to stop along the road which takes you from the Coastal village of Cushendun to the idyllic town of Ballycastle. It was important in the 1800s for recording the passage of transatlantic ships, relaying the information back to Lloyds of London and due to the short sea passage, it was often the last hope for the McDonnell clan beckoning for aid from allies in the Western Isles of Scotland in the 15th and 16th Century.

You can begin the journey in the towns of Ballycastle or Cushendun and although the road can be narrow in places it is very much accessible for visitors.
