Giant's Causeway (Causeway Centre)
Situated 8mi/13km from the Bushmills is one of the great tourist sights of Northern Ireland, the Giant's Causeway, a geological formation of volcanic origin, consisting of a series of some 40,000 vertical basalt columns of prismatic form and varying width and height, their top sides forming stepping stones. Some of the columns have names, like the "Lady's Fan", the "Giant's Organ" and the "Horseshoe". The most imposing part, reached by the Shepherd's Path, is known as the Amphitheater, with symmetrically arranged blocks of basalt and columns up to 80ft/24m high towering out of the sea.
