Rathlin Island

Rathlin Island lies just over six miles north of Ballycastle and fourteen from the Mull of Kintyre, Scotland. Rathlin is popular with bird watchers, geologists, botanists, divers and sea anglers - and anyone with a love for wild rugged scenery. Rathlin's population is just over 100, and the islanders are proud of their culture and traditions, with story telling, song, music and dance being popular leisure pursuits. A passenger and car ferry service is operated daily from Ballycastle to Rathlin.
