ANTRIM COAST & GLENS AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY

The Antrim Coast & Glens AONB was designated in 1988 under the Nature Conservation and Amenity Lands (NI) Order. It includes Rathlin Island, the Glens of Antrim and the coastal area between Larne and Ballycastle. There is no doubt this area contains some of the most beautiful and varied scenery in Northern Ireland.

The Causeway Coast & Glens Heritage Trust is a public/private/voluntary sector partnership established in May 2002 as an independent company limited by guarantee. It includes representation from Ballymena, Ballymoney, Coleraine, Larne, Limavady, and Moyle Borough and District Councils in partnership with representatives from the environment, the community, the education, the farming and the tourism sectors.
