Nice place to stop for 5 minutes to see the Stone Cairn of Sean O'Neill 1567 with modern Celtic Cross. Climb onto cairn to read Irish inscription on Cross. Brilliant views of Cushendun from cairn.

Quick Stop; Beautiful Views Regardless

A Cairn is a pile of rocks built as a religious site or burial mound. The Cairn of "Shane the Proud," killed in 1567, is just about one mile north out of town and is right off the road (easily seen from the car). Although located on private property, I think if you respect the land and only take a few photos, no one will care. The views from the area are beautiful of Cushendun way below in the valley and the sea. Five - 10 minutes is plenty of time here.

Superb site on private ground above Cushendun with breathtaking view of bay below and glen to right. Sean o'Neil Sorley boy's captor lost his head nearby to a macDonald sword .....a decendant of whom passed by almost 5 centuries later...proclaiming Sean decent til end

Shane the Proud

Visited the cairn of Sean O'Neill died in 1567 (murdered actually!). Cairn is hard to locate, but is just off Torr Road on the left as you go up. Walking up is really great exercise and not for the faint of heart! The cairn is a large circular, rock and concrete stand. In the middle is a tall pedestal with a Celtic cross on the top. The rock with Sean O'Neill 1567 is on the front side. The cairn is on private property and permission should be requested.
