This has to be one of the best views I have ever seen. You can see the whole of lough Erne. On a clear day you can see the sea and Donegal beach. Well worth a visit

Be it windy, raining, hailstones, bazing sun, day or night; this place always looks good. Attempted the walk the other day, got down about.. 4 flights of stairs, gave up. Would advise others to wear appropriate footwear and pace yourself. Best of all, it's FREE.

We drove out here on the recommendation of a local and were really impressed with the views of Lough Erne below you and the Atlantic Ocean and hills of Donegal in the distance. Well worth the detour to see.
