We drove up to Gortmore the other day - the viewing point near Binevenagh, from where you can look over to Inishowen and onto the plain that is Magilligan:

Looking down on Magilligan Strand and over the Foyle Estuary towards Donegal.  As you can see it turned out a pretty grey day without much decent light around - a big bank of cloud almost enveloping Inishowen.  It was lovely, though - not cold and not too windy.  In a couple of months time it will be very different, with the cold North-Westerlys trying to separate your head from your shoulders.


  1. It's a nice view on any day, obviously...! I can easily see, though, that the wind might become a considerable issue during the days and months to come. But it will get better again, some time next year :)

    1. Cheers Roy, I intend to be here quite a few times over the next few months, Like Ona, I suspect, its a place that grounds you. In a big way :)
