Long Description:
This seastack is known as Camel’s back. I guess it is a Bactrian camel — it has two humps. Geologically it is a dike cutting through the basalts underlying the Causeway.

Coordinates Taken at the viewpoint on the footpath, (looking West) leading to the Giants Causeway, County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

"Portnaboe's most famous resident is Finn McCool's camel. Once a living and lively beast, the camel was turned to stone and forlornly lies along the bottom of the cliffs. Apparently he was the only steed capable of carrying Finn home across long distances.

The Camel is actually a basaltic dyke, formed from cooling lava which has pushed its way through other layers of rock." Text Source: (visit link)
