More than two centuries ago the Stuart family planted an avenue of beech trees, as an approach to their mansion. South of Ballintoy and Ballycastle, northeast of Ballymoney in the County Antrim countryside, Bregagh Road is now a public avenue, lined with magnificent beech trees that are almost 250 years old, known as The Dark Hedges. A spirit known as the Grey Lady is said to roam the avenue though legend doesn’t seem to specify who she might be. The Dark Hedges is among Northern Ireland’s most photographed landscapes, for which I did my part. 🙂 Game of Thrones fans will recognize the setting.
