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.

Beeston Castle (By kvetner)

This is an English Heritage site so you can't take off or land within the site without their permission. I parked in the EH car park (£3 for non-members) and walked to https://w3w.co/cardinal.hotels.satellite, which is on a public footpath. There was a handy tree stump to set up gear clear of the muddy path. Accessibility: the footpath is accessed via kissing gates and a few steps, and can get very muddy in wet weather. Hazards: the castle sits on a rocky outcrop roughly 120m high, so your drone ceiling may need adjusting to fly higher. However there were several low-flying light aircraft when I visited, and they may not all maintain full clearance above the castle. Also dogs and dog walkers.
