  • 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.
  • Fantastic place to visit even in the worst weather. Looks. Like there is work afoot to make the place more accessible, I hope it doesn't end up ruining the place.
  • 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.
