Toilets were sparkling clean. We stopped off for a pot of tea and had some beautiful homemade shortbread! The welcome was so inviting and courteous. Have passed here many times but going forward will definitely call in for a meal!

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.

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
