Portballintrae: III

I've spent an interesting few days at Portballintrae, the popular seaside resort on the Causeway Coast, County Antrim.

Yesterday I paid a visit to the remnants of Clare Park, former seat of the McGildowney family. Today, I drove to Portstewart, in County Londonderry, where I parked the jalopy and walked along the coast, past the convent school once called Rock Castle.

Further along the coast, I came to a modern dwelling, built some years ago on the site of Low Rock Castle, which was the birth-place of the hero of Ladysmith, Field-Marshal Sir George White VC.

I've taken photographs of these places, which I shall publish when I return to Belmont GHQ.
