Seen here are Northern Ireland’s famous ‘Dark Hedges‘, a breathtaking avenue of beech trees that were planted over 200 years ago by the Stuart family. According to Ballymoney Tourism, “it was intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their home, Gracehill House. Two centuries later, the trees remain a magnificent sight and have become known as the Dark Hedges.”
