Public can savour splendour of the Glens again

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 05/03/2014

Glenariff, commonly called the Queen of the Glens, is one of the outstanding beauty spots in north Antrim.

The glacially-formed valley with its tumbling waterfalls has always been a tourism favourite, but access to the most picturesque parts of the glen has been restricted for over a year because of land slippages caused by heavy snow and rain.

Extensive remedial work has been carried out and it is hoped that the waterfall walkway will be reopened to the public soon.

While safety must ultimately remain a paramount concern, this is an area which depends heavily on tourism.

It is vital that it does not miss another high season and one of nature's wonders is seen in all its glory again.
