Malin Head on the Inishowen Peninsula, Co Donegal is Ireland's most northerly point and is a Discovery Point on The Wild Atlantic Way with spectacular views and rugged landscape. At the tip is Banba's Crown, a tall derelict building known as The Tower, which was built in 1805 by the British Admiralty as part of a number of buildings around the Irish coast to protect against a French invasion. The rough waters off the head have claimed many shipwrecks over the years and the sand dunes in this area are some of the largest in Europe. You can also walk along the cliffs to see Hell's Hole which is a remarkable subterranean sea filled cavern (250ft by 8ft). It is a great area for walking, swimming and fishing with spectacular scenery for any photographer.
