Signposted as the A2, the scenic bit of this road is the section running along the coast of County Antrim between Larne and Ballycastle. The route was intended to link some of this areas most remote communities, but it also opened up some of the most lovely views to drivers, and passes by some of Northern Ireland's favourite attractions including the Mourne Mountains, Carrickfergus Castle, Bushmills, Dunluce Castle, the Giant's Causeway and the Glens of Antrim.
