Contributor Martin McKenna created this drone video of beautiful Ballintoy Harbor, a small natural port in County Anterim of Northern Ireland.  Located roughly halfway between Giant's Coast and Bushmills, the harbor is dotted with giant rocks and numerous tidal "blowholes".  The harbor may be recognizable to fans of HBO's Game of Thrones series: the harbor appeared as the Greyjoy Kingdom of Pyke in the Ironn Islands of Westeros in the show's second season.

The fascinating Cushendun Caves of County Antrim in Nothern Ireland were formed over 400 million years and not only offer unique photo ops and beautiful hiking, but have also claimed a bit of attention due to their serving as the 'Stormlands' in Season 2 of HBO's Game of Thrones.  The priestess Melisandre is escorted here by Davos Seaworth (at the behest of Stannis Baratheon), only to give birth shortly thereafter to a ominous shadow figure.

One of the landmarks around Belfast, Northern Ireland is Cavehill, a hill overlooking the city from its northeast.  It's known for the views it affords of all of Northern Ireland's largest city, which can extend to mainland Scotland on clear days.  Distinguished by an outcrop said to resemble a profile of Napoleon Bonaparte, the hill is believed to be the inspiration for the "sleeping giant" in Jonathan Swift's 18th century classic, Gulliver's Travels.  Check out the famous hill from above in this drone video by soarscape.

Swatragh Wind Farm

Northern Ireland has some of the best wind resources of anywhere in the world.  In mid-2019, a report from the UK government indicated that the territory generated nearly two-fifths of its electricity from wind turbines.  That's roughly twice the percentage for the UK as a whole, which is itself far above the European average. In this drone video by Martin McKenna, you'll get an aerial view of one of Northern Ireland's 82 windpower installations (as of mid-2019): the wind farm of Satragh, in County Londonderry.
