Asking at the Tourist Information in Coleraine about a 'walking tour' we had read about in a brochure a staff member there called the Ulster Scot Resource Centre and made an appointment for us to take the walking tour. For a nominal fee we walked through various parts of Coleraine where our guide pointed out such things as the location of the old city ramparts, an old monastery whose location is now only marked by the name of the street, Abbey Street. We passed numerous historic churches and other sites. Mount Sandel was pointed out, the oldest archeological site in Ireland with carbon dating back to 9000 B.C. The artefacts from this archeological dig though are in the Belfast Museum. The tour brought the history of Coleraine to life. The Ulster Scot Resource Centre itself where we began the tour is worth a visit. It houses extensive history of the Orange Order and is full of their memorabilia. It was a morning well spent.
