“What a view!!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a great place if you fancy passing an hour or so on a drive, cycle or walk. Approaching from the Buncrana side you cannot miss the straight road going up the gap as you approach. Then on the other side it is windy going down. From the top you have one of the best views that I have ever seen. On the clear day that we went there you could actually see the curving of the earth out over the Atlantic. It is a must see!!

“dramatic”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Looking back as we drove up on a wild sunny day - beautiful. We pulled in at a parking spot near the top and tracked our journey over the previous hour - on and off wonderful empty beaches. A wild lonely beautiful place

“Windy Road”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

There really something magical on this trail. I was even shown just before a certain bump your car does move with the car brake on you have to get it seen to by a local as the spot is hard to find nearby the lake on your right coming from buncrana but the view is magnificent. There is our lady statue for a prayer or two just be careful driving around it it is very dangerous if you are unsure about your brakes. Check your brakes before you go there.
