Ramble on Rathlin - Nine Glens Walking Tours

Event date: 
Sunday, April 8, 2018 - 10:00



Rathlin Island lies 5.5 miles off the coast of Ireland. Situated just off the coast of Ballycastle it is home to one of the largest bird sanctuaries in Northern Ireland. An island steeped in history and folklore, it is the perfect spot for a family day out! Many tales of myth and mystery surround Rathlin; perhaps the most famous tells of Robert the Bruce. In 1306, the Scottish King was driven from Scotland by Edward I of England and took refuge on Rathlin, where he watched a spider persevering repeatedly to bridge a gap with its web. Eventually it succeeded. Taking heart from the spider's efforts, he returned to Scotland and eventually regained his crown.

Our guide will meet you at the Rathlin Ferry Terminal in Ballycastle at 10.00am. N.B the Rathlin Ferry is not included in the price of this tour of price (We would recommend booking prior to tour date).

Tours last approximately 1.5hrs.
