(Knock)Layd out Cold

On Friday I thought that I'd be going to Kerry today, but by Saturday night I'd changed my mind and set my sights on heading north to County Antrim. What a glorious day to go anywhere. I was a little worried at one point just north of Belfast when I came across a 10km bank of thick fog. Luckily I emerged out of this before I reached the first site.

I started off revisiting two sites including Dooey's Cairn (County Antrim). After that I headed off to find some new sites. Most of these seemed to be tombs; the rest being standing stones. Nearly every site was dominated by Knocklayd, a glorious dome-like mountain that, along with Slemish, seems to be the focus of so many of Antrim's sites.

I had to opt out of visiting a few sites on my list due to taking a long time to find a couple of the ones I visited early on. I think I may well be back in Antrim next week to visit these sites.
