Location

Sallagh Braes is the name for a formation of basalt cliffs that form a striking natural amphitheatre - 100 metres high and 2 kilometres long. The area was one of the first regions in Ireland to be inhabited by humans.

In Game of Thrones, the moorlands below the cliffs were used for the scenes in Season 6, Episode 7: The Broken Man.
