Cliffs, woodland, a lake on top and magnificent views
Short Summary created by pdtempan,  6 May 2011
Binevenagh has an unmistakable profile, with its impressive line of basalt cliffs and a lower series of broken crags resembling fangs. There is a lake on the summit plateau. Binevenagh overlooks Magilligan Point, the NW tip of Co. Derry, and there are fine views of Lough Foyle and, beyond that, the hills of Inishowen in Co. Donegal.
