Visitors should not miss Banba’s Crown, Malin
Head. It is not just Ireland’s most northerly
point, but an area of great scenic beauty and of
historical, scientific and ecological importance.
The circuit of the Head will take you past the
Radio Station, built in 1910. Here a tall derelict
building known locally as “The Tower” was built
by British Admiralty in 1805 to defend against a
possible French invasion during the Napoleonic
wars. It was used later as a Lloyds Signal Station.
During the Second World War, the small huts
were built and used by our defence forces to
keep a lookout and protect our neutrality. It is a
perfect starting point for a ramble along the cliffs
to Hell’s Hole, a remarkable subterranean cavern
250 feet long and 8 feet wide.
Nearby is a picturesque natural arch which is
known as Devil’s Bridge.
