Geography of Belfast

County Antrim boasts one of the most spectacular coastlines in Ireland. On a clear day, it is possible to look out from the Antrim cliffs and see as far as the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland. The coastline is rugged, but what sets it apart is the chalk. The 'White Rocks' is the name given to the cliffs in County Antrim, made up of chalk or limestone. The chalk rocks are in fact full of fossils, which can still be found today. The outcrops of chalk in County Antrim have been of economic value for a considerable time. Early people used the flint to make weapons and other tools. Even now, the chalk is quarried for a wide range of industrial uses, including toothpaste and paint.

Belfast city itself is ringed by hills, which are visible from many points within the city centre. The highest is Cave Hill at 355 meters and has a panoramic view of the city and even Scotland, on a clear day. The Antrim Plateau lies to the south and north of the city, making up the Castlereagh and Holywood Hills. This physical geography has pretty much constrained the city to remain within the Lagan Valley.

One of the characteristics that sets Belfast apart from other cities is the strong ethnic divide in the city, between Protestants and Catholics. There is still a very clear delineation, whether by flags, buildings or simply graffiti.
