A detour, but well worth it, the Giant's Sconce is located near to the Windyhill Road that connects Coleraine with Limavady. Like the better preserved Grianan of Aileach this was an important fort built to command the surrounding landscape, And command it still does. From here there are extensive views accross the Antrim Plateau almost all the way to Belfast. The only hill is Slemish Mountan near Ballymena far in the distance. The site was the location between the Uliad - the men of Ulster - and the Ciannachta based in the Roe Valley behind the fort in 681AD. Not an awful lot appear to have changed in the landscape from here in the intervening period - perhaps a few less trees.
