Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland, World Heritage Site, towards sunset.

World Listed Heritage site, Giant’s Causeway is an area of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns resulting from a volcanic eruption. When the lava met the ocean, Giant’s Causeway was born. The tallest column is 12 metres high. Legend has it that the Irish giant Finn McCool built the causeway to walk to Scotland to fight his Scottish rival Benandonner. One version of the legend goes that when McCool went to scotland and saw the much bigger Benandonner, he returned to Ireland and asked his wife to disguise him as a baby. So when Benandonner later came to Ireland looking to fight McCool, he was so frightened by the large size of the “baby” that he didn’t dare meeting the even bigger father – Finn. Benandonner quickly fled home, and ripped up the Causeway as he went to prevent Giant McCool from following him.
