  • Ok, the view was fantastic; a great 360 from up high. I confess I don't know the full historical story on this place; an ancient Irish fort (it was hailing when we visited so we didn't stay long).... ...  more »
  • the mounted walk is endless, especially when you play a race against the clock with the Sun because in November 16: 30 and it's dark. Fort in him is amazing after the night view gives a different picture of the scene with all the lights of cities is very nice!

  • A beautiful location for a walk and to take in some celtic history. There is a tea and coffee cart here most days during the summer which is great.
  • One of my favourite places in the world. From the Foyle to the Swilly, the views are unreal. There's a reason our ancestors chose this spot.
  • Fun stop. Just outside of Londonderry. Worth the drive. Not far and not crowded. Amazing views. Great history.
  • Absolutely stunning view of surroundings (5-10km view in every direction), but structure itself is noting special
  • Stunning views of the River Foyle and Lough Swilly. Stone circle is unusual. Worth a wee trip up to it. Can get quite windy up there.
