|The Bridge at Cushendun Village. The river Dun flows from the Antrim Hills at Orra through picturesque Glendun to enter the Sea of Moyle at Cushendun. Dun (Gaelic: donn) means brown, the colour of the waters being stained from the peaty soil of the Antrim hill country. Cushendun village, which was designed for Lord Cushendun in the style of a pretty Cornish village by the architect Clough Williams Ellis, is preserved as a National Trust property.|
|The Scottish mainland i.e. the Mull of Kintyre can be seen from Cushendun, as it is only 20 miles across the sea. This view also shows the estuary of the river Dun. The sheltered harbour is used by fishing boats and private pleasure craft.|
