Glen of Princess Taisie
Glentaisie, the first of the nine glens, starts at the front of Knocklayde mountain and meanders around its base down to Ballycastle Bay. The glen is believed to have been named after the beautiful Princess Taisie daughter of King Dorm from Rathlin Island. The upper slopes are barren green fertile fields home to flocks of sheep and know one else. The base is a quiet haven for wildlife with a trees and hedgerows that surround the winding River Toe, as it approaches Ballycastle pass below the old narrow gauge railway bridge and Ballycastle Forest to meet up with Glenshesk at the seafront.
