The beach at Glencolmcille.
Following on from the previous few posts, we continued our touring on our first day staying in Killybegs. We had got a deal for a one night stay in a hotel in the town, and all the posts so far were on the day of arrival. In my last post, we had stopped at Malin Beg, and the beautiful Trabane Strand. From there we took the short drive round to Glencolmcille. We had one stop on the road round the coast, almost at Glencolmcille itself, to appreciate the views towards Glen Head.

Arriving in Glencolmcille itself, I found the views across the beautiful beach to Glen Head to be breathtaking. A little futher inland from Glen Head, and appearing to be an extension of it, was Beefan and Garveross Mountain, which was displaying the most amazing colours in the golden evening light. I was so enamoured of this view that I confess to taking too many similar shots.

We were right beside the folk village here, with its picturesque thatched cottages, and we took a break, sitting outside the cafe, with coffee and scones, just admiring the views.
After that, I couldn’t resist a few last shots before we left.
What a place! And we weren’t finished yet – next stop, Teelin.
