North Coast Love...


A few weeks ago, we were treated to the most epic day up on the North Coast, exploring some secret spots and amazing coastlines. Our guide was the ever awesome Mike, one half of the Bearded Candle Makers and he was kind enough to show us, along with our pooches, Angus & Hamish, some of the most beautiful places we've ever been lucky enough to go in Northern Ireland (or otherwise)...

Having not had a car for very long, we've not explored all that much of this beautiful island... so, if you want to see some incredible hidden beaches, coastlines and scenery? Ask a surfer and rock climber who's made it his mission to seek out these stunning spots! He'll be the best guide (and company!) you could ask for.

The day started out as a perfect Autumn morning, crisp, cool and super misty. The photo's I've shared - just a very small selection of what I shot - track the day as it unfolded... going from misty and moody, to breath-taking sunshine and light moving across rock faces and gleaming cerulean waters. We marvelled all day at how lucky we were to get this stunning day out exploring... it was insanely magical.

We started near Ballycastle - ate fish and chips on the harbour walls, went up the road further to Ballintoy Harbour and Dunluce Castle and then chased the sunset home. It was a pretty perfect day, all in all.

Huge thanks to our fantastic guide Mike - it was the best roadtrip EVER! We had a really fab day with you - Let's go back soon! :)
