Boat trips are available in nearby Teelin for angling or sightseeing around Slieve League,if you think it's impressive from the top looking down it is positively awesome gazing upwards from the deck of a boat. If hill walking is your thing,then there are numerous mapped and sign posted walks in the surrounding area and a scattering of archaeological sites to visit also. Why don't you come and enjoy a warm Donegal welcome at Kate's Cottage More
