A spectacular place in God's own country... wild, pristine and a place of healing. Time stood still and I felt very connected to nature. The solitude and beauty here is unsurpassed.

A stunning beach, just the place to soothe your soul with a long, peaceful walk by the sea. Like all of County Donegal beaches there were hardly any people about and I'm not complaining. Fabulous views and extremely peaceful.
