The Giant's Causeway

The Giant's Causeway is a World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland.

The area is made up from about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns which were created after a volcanic eruption.

The name comes from the legend of Finn MacCool. The story goes that mythical Irish giant Finn built the causeway to get to Scotland and battle with a rival giant called Benandonner.
