"Drive up this coast road at your leisure
And here's a hint to find the treasure.
From the cache site you can see
Through the window to the sea!"
Glenarm is the first (or the last depending upon what direction you are travelling!) of the nine Glens of Antrim. "Glenarm" means "The Glen of the Army".
This cache reflects a two hundred year old local legend concerning a young woman who was tragically drowned in Glenarm Bay. Her sweetheart was so deeply shocked when he heard the news that he lost his mind and for the remainder of his life stood gazing through the window at the sea waiting for his love to return.
The actual "Madman's Window" referred to in the title is the remains of a limestone sea stack, the blocks of white stone forming a "window" looking out to sea.
Park in the car park and take care on the road. A rough trail starts at N54 57.929 W005 55.562 and heads southwards up the hill towards the cache. The cache is a 220x150x70 mm tab lock box.
Try to avoid walking on the primroses which may be easily missed when they are not in bloom.
