The story goes that an Irish giant (Finn MacCool – a great name!!) was challenged to a fight by a Scottish giant. Finn accepted the challenge and built the causeway across the North Channel so that the two giants could meet. Things didnt go well and Finn needed a bit of irish cunning to escape. In the end the causeway was smashed and this is what remains.

We were there in misty overcast conditions – I couldnt have asked for a better day.
