£50,000 Ulster-Scots stories project for Gobbins cliff top path

The Gobbins.

THE Ulster-Scots Agency is funding new signage at The Gobbins tourist attraction to the tune of £50,000, the News Letter reports.

The signage will be located at the upper path at The Gobbins in Islandmagee.

The project is at design stage and is expected to be completed by the end of next spring.

The display will incorporate the history, heritage, flora and fauna and views at the clifftop location.

Chief Executive of the Ulster-Scots Agency, Ian Crozier, said: “The Gobbins, which attracts many thousands of visitors each year, presents us with an excellent opportunity to highlight the rich Ulster-Scots heritage of Islandmagee and the wider East Antrim area to a local, national and international audience.

“Our investment will see a wide variety of Ulster-Scots stories told along the Gobbins cliff top path, which is free and offers a very different walking experience from the paid attraction down at sea level, including breath-taking views of Scotland.

“We believe that this will become an increasingly important part of the offering at the Gobbins as the attraction grows in popularity.”
