Looking at the ruins of Kinbane Castle now, it’s hard to imagine what it once looked like back in its previous glory. It was a two-storey castle built in 1547 by Colla MacDonnell, son of the Lord of Islay and Kintyre. It had a large courtyard, and even perhaps other smaller buildings around it. Kinbane Castle was besieged by British Forces in 1551 and 1555, where the castle was partially destroyed by cannon fire. - Rebuilt soon afterwards, Colla MacDonnell passed away at the castle in 1558. During another attack in the 1500s, soldiers from Carrickfergus arrived to overtake the castle. They weren’t able to immediately gain access and waited below in the hollow between the cliffs and castle. Those within the castle lit a fire on the headland to call for assistance. As help arrived, the soldiers became trapped between the hollow, with cliffs on one side and the ocean on the other. The soldiers were all killed and the hollow became known as “Lag na Sassenach” (Hollow of the English).

Great and not so well known walk. Well worth it!

Ruins of a 16th century castle jutting out to sea, viewed from the car park above. Walk a little along the path and look out for the waterfalls coming of the cliffs and if the wind is blowing on shore the water may get blown back up again!

Old Ruins of a Castle and salmon Fishermans home. Lots of steps down to the castle but worth it for the coastal views from the castle.
