Needed to travel on this road to get into Maghera, it is a very beautiful road with good scenery. Picnic spots are easily located on this road. The road is perfect for the slow drive when you are taking your time. Would travel on again.

No need to add any more photos - they say it all. I could add that there is now a very good recently totally refurbished restaurant/pub on the north side of the road - The Ponderosa - and it's officially, at 946ft above sea level,...More

Love this view every time I go home. Great vistas going from Derry right over to Tyrone on one side and Antrim on the other.

This pass that goes from Magherafelt to Londonderry/Derry is magnificent and it has good country sights to look at. It's a long pass but is worth the drive in. Fantastic

Ireland has a number of roads through spectacular scenery. In any other country this road would be a motorway given that it links the two largest cities in Northern Ireland. It can get very busy so the best time to enjoy is outside the rush...More
