One of the eight sites on the Echoes of the Causeway heritage trail app, this story is set at Mountsandel, Coleraine.
Ireland’s earliest known settlement and steeped in stories, Mountsandel may once have harboured the mysterious, mythical Pechts and, indeed, has attracted many watchful eyes over the years.
