Sights Above: Glenarm

Glenarm lies on the North Channel coast between Larne & Carnlough. Glenarm takes its name from the glen in which it lies, the southernmost of the nine Glens of Antrim.

It was a cold Sunday Morning at the turn of the year and I had decided to head into the Glens of Antrim early to find the sunrise over the hills. Having already stopped to take some photos around Slemish mountain and the surrounding areas, I headed down the glen to the town of Glenarm. Many times I have been through this town but never really stopped to take in the views across the harbour and out into the North Channel. This was my first time flying the drone over water, so you can guess that I was a little nervous. However, once I got it up in the ai and flying back and worth around the town and harbour, I was amazed with the sheer beauty of the surrounding views.

The view across the harbour looking over towards the coast road, leading to Ballygally and Larne. Notice how still the water is in the harbour and the sun just creeping in on the hill behind. For scale, that’s me and dad standing on the harbour path!

A RNLI Lifeboat sits ready for action at the end of the Jetty.
