Near Glenariff, Co. Antrim

Glenariff (from the Irish Gleann Aireamh, meaning 'valley of the ploughman/arable valley') is one of the Glens of Antrim and like all glens in that area, it was shaped during the Ice Age by giant glaciers. It is sometimes called the 'Queen of the Glens' and is the biggest and most popular of the Glens of Antrim. The village of Waterfoot lies on the coast at the foot of the glen while a popular tourist destination is the Glenariff Forest Park with its trails through the trees and alongside picturesque waterfalls.
