Waterfoot, Garron Road
Waterfoot is a small village on the Antrim coast which has a 1 mile-long beach at Red Bay, named from the reddish sand that washes from the exposed sandstone on the cliffs down to the shore. The village is at the foot of Glenariff, one of the Glens of Antrim (the village is also known as Glenariff). The 2001 Census recorded a population of 504 inhabitants (Wikipedia).
The A2 in Northern Ireland

The A2 in Northern Ireland is a major road which runs for 239 miles from the border crossing at Muff (where it becomes the Irish Regional Road R238) to Newry in County Down. A considerable length of the route is often referred to the Antrim Coast Road because much of it follows the scenic coastline of County Antrim; other parts of the road follow the coasts in Counties Down and Londonderry.
