Ballycastle Forest

Nestled on the side of Knocklayde mountain Ballycastle forest has two entrances, the first is at the end of Fairhill Street (directly off the Diamond) and the second is up on the high Glenshesk Road. At both points you can park your car and walk from there, picnic benches are also provided but in all honesty I find the Glenshesk Road entrance more scenic and tranquil. Although it's not a particularly interesting forest the views are somewhat spectacular as the trail leads you half way up Knocklayde placing you above most of the surrounding hills and glens.
