Cushendall Review

Turnley's Tower—a curious, fortified square tower of red stone, built in 1820 as a curfew tower and jail for "idlers and rioters"—stands in Cushendall, at a crossroads in the middle of the village. Cushendall is called the capital of the Glens because it has a few more streets than the other villages hereabouts. The road from Waterfoot to Cushendall is barely a mile long and worth the stroll or cycle out to see the coastal caves (one of which had a resident called Nun Marry) that line the route.
