About the neighbourhood
Nestled within the Donegal Hills along the shores of Lough Swilly, Cecils cottage has breathtaking views over the surrounding areas and lough. A peaceful retreat only a stones throw from Stragill Beach. The cottage has a private laneway to the beach and also a quiet raised and decked reading area (See pictures for details). The cottage is in a tranquil spot yet only 4km from Buncrana Main Street and all local amenities. Buncrana Town and nearby surrounding areas have so much to offer for travellers. The local scenic beauty is most definitely a huge attraction. Sandy beaches, numerous viewpoints from rolling hills, cliffs and mountains. An ideal way to enjoy the scenic beauty of this area is by taking the 'Inishowen 100' route plan by the local tourist industry which shows off Inishowen...
