Excerpt from Photographs of the Giant's Causeway: With Descriptive Letters

The Antrim coast, in its whole extent from Belfast to Portrush, is highly interesting in a scenic point of view, and very singular in its geological character; but the more remarkable portions of this coast, and those generally visited by tourists, are from Larne to Glenarm, and from Portrush to Fairhead. Basaltic rocks occur over the whole northern coast of the County Antrim, but the district embracing the most interesting variety of forms, ranges over a space of about four miles, from Portcoon Cave, on the west, to Dunseverick Castle, on the east.

To form any conception of the appearance of this extraordinary work of nature, we must suppose a wild rocky shore, with here a shoal, and there a beetling cliff, alternating with deposits of debris. The cliffs connected with the Causeway, and which constitutes its grand features, range from one hundred and forty to three hundred and ninety feet; and of these, Pleaskin, one of the highest, is the most beautiful, and affords the best views of this extraordinary line of coast. The numerous bays which have been formed by the ceaseless action of the ocean waves, vary from one-eighth to a quarter of a mile in length, and about the same in depth, have been denominated ports. Thus we have Portcoon, Port-na-baw, Port Ganniay, Port Noffer, Port Roestan, Port-na-Spania, Port-na-Callian, Port-na-Tober, Port-na-Pleaskin, and Port-na-Trum.

It would be out of place here to enter into geological details. Such as take an interest in that science, will have recourse to other and more suitable sources for information.
