This is the most photographed and painted object in the Larne area. It is a reminder of who built the harbour in the town and how much he invested into it. The tower is the first thing you notice as you sail into the harbour

People see this on arrival in Larne via the ferries and the area around it is pleasant for a walk and to watch the ferries come and go. The locals are quite fond of doing this.

It is a pretty monument but there is not a lot to do round about, and iIn good weather it is worth a diversion along Chaine Memorial Road to see it.

I was very surprised to find that there is such a huge, beautiful beach next to the tower. Last time I guess the tide was full in. Wonderful, powdery silver sand, plus lots of limpet shells or tumble-dried seaweed drifts in places. The tower always looks handsome, today it was sunlit against a blue summer sky.

Take a walk along the shore line next to the port of larne and view Chaine Memorial Tower. Watch the ferries arrive from Scotland.

It is a very big, tall, handsome tower, I must say. Its shut, which is a pity, the view from on high would be really good. As it is, the view of the tower is well worth seeing. It sticks out into the top of Larne Lough along a stretch of shoreline with other monuments and memorials. Come at sunrise to see a really firey sky behind the tower.
