Port, Donegal

Late last year we visited what is probably one of the most spectacular places in Ireland: Port, Co. Donegal. This is a deserted catchment with an all but abandoned port on the sea with a spectacular view out across the Atlantic. It's hard work getting there, but the views are worth it. The photographs say it all.

At the top of the valley is a narrow glacial lake.

The only inhabitants are sheep - not even a tree grows.

Rounding a corner you see the harbour in the distance.

The Atlantic waves crash across the rocks.
