57. Portsalon Beaches and Fanad Head on the Fanad Peninsula

SCENES from IRELAND

From Rathmullan you can drive north to the wonder beaches near Portsalon, there is a nearby village with a cafe and pub!

... which you look down on with a good view from the road before continuing on to Fanad Head and its lighthouse ....

 

... which is magnificently set on the cliffs.

A small empty beach near Fanad Head lighthouse.

 

Looking back up Lough Swilly.

 

Looking across to Dunree Head-

 

 

The rocks and coastal walking near Fanad Head Lighthouse.

 

 A great area for coastal walking - great views along the coast

Lichen on the rocks ....

.... 'modern sculptured' rocks ....

.... and sea sculptured tree trunk at Fanad Head - collectively well worth a Turner Prize!

 

'Little Ros' has a final stroll before driving back to Rathmullan.

 

Looking across to Loch Swilly and the Inishowen Peninsula.

Fanad Head, Fanad Lighthouse, Fanad Peninsula, Co. Donegal, Ireland: At the end of the road to the lighthouse there is only limited parking so beware. There is more parking space back up the road and I think we passed a pub nearby too. There are wonderful views all round and too the west you can get down onto the shingle beach for a picnic.
