Slemish (By TheFatController)

Just outside Ballymena, near the village of Broughshane, Slemish has a free car park with a small information centre & toilets (which are temporarily closed due to covid). There are great views from the top even without a drone. It is a very exposed mountain and can often be too wet or windy to fly, which is when your backup (phone?) camera comes in handy.

Sallagh Braes, Larne (By TheFatController)

From the car park you can head South towards Larne passing Winterfell (Game of Thrones location), part of which has been left for future filming, or you can head North towards Scawt Hill. There is plenty of open land for flying and great views of the Antrim coast. There are also a few ancient hill fort sites in the location.

Strangford Lough (By TheFatController)

You can drive direct to the location I've marked or you can park at Lough Cowey and walk there (along very quiet country roads). Lough Cowey is also a suitable location for flying, though there are often fishermen, and the local model aircraft club sometimes use it for their seaplanes.
