#AYearOfBuses 162: Larne – Carnlough – Ballycastle
Today, it’s a first for us here on #AYearOfBuses – we’re heading over the water to Northern Ireland, where there’s a particularly scenic coastal bus route.
Translink’s route 162 runs from the industrial seaport town of Larne, on the east coast of County Antrim, Northern Ireland, to Carnlough, with its picturesque harbour on the shores of Carnlough Bay.
It takes a winding, snaking path along the A2 coast road, with spectacular views out towards the Firth of Clyde and the west coast of Scotland.
The 162a continues further north, to Ballycastle – the north-easternmost coastal tip of Ireland at the northern mainland limit of the Antrim Coast and Glens Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
