A wonderful, scenic walking route that follows the shoreline from Moville to Greencastle, about 4.4kms in one direction.

The views across Lough Foyle are simply breathtaking: from Culmore near Derry, across to Limavady, Magilligan, Benone Strand and Bishop's Gate. At Magilligan, marvel at the Martello Tower, built in the early 1800s to warn of a French attack! (Such buildings were dotted all along the northern and eastern coast of Ireland.) And lastly, but not least, enjoy the sight of Binevenagh Mountain.

This is a wee gem. Soak up the wildlife (I've seen kingfishers, Grey Herons, Otters and other animals/mammals) and pass the home of one of Ireland's most famous writers, Brian Friel. (On this note of famous people, at the bottom of Lafferty's Lane you might also see the Irish politician and Noble Prize winner, John Hume.)

On returning to Moville, drop into Farren's for a coffee and pastry, or pop into Bernie's Bistro or the Cosy Cottage for something more substantial.

On a warm sunny day, you might as well be on the French Cote d'Azur ...
