SCENES from IRELAND
1. The Urris Hills and Mamore Gap, Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal
Looking south from the landward side of Mamore Gap along the road to Dunree Head (see page 4 on the Dunree Fort Museum). North-west Donegal e.g. the Inishowen Peninsula is very unspoilt and very uncrowded and a delightful area to explore.
The Urris Hills from the inland side, and good walking over them.
The road to the sea approaching Mamore Gap and the Urris Hills.
Looking down to the sea from Mamore Gap in the Urris Hills, with Dunaff Head in the distance, great scenery all round on the steep descent to the beautifully scenic coast.
Once off the ferry we head for Mamore Gap and the road to the coast through the Urris Hills.
The ancient shrine at Mamore Gap and St Eigne's Well ....
.... and what a view down to the coast and Dunaff Head in the distance.
Dunaff Head from Mamore Gap. There is much good holiday walking on the Urris Hills with wonderful walks and views to the sea and up and down the Atlantic coast.
