Locations: Stroove

A favourite walk in Stroove (known locally as Shroove) leads to Port-a-doris - Port of the Door. The “Door” to the lovely cave is a natural arch. Here is a wishing well, where those who drink the water are said to have their wishes granted. Near Stroove, there is an ancient cross-inscribed pillar stone and a small modern cross. A spring dedicated to St. Colmcille spouts near the stone. The saint is said to have stopped here for water on his way to Iona. Located close to Inishowen Head, this area has many lovely small coves including a beautiful sandy beach known as “The Big White Bay” overlooked by Stroove Lighthouse. Stroove has a European Blue Flag Beach with the standards that apply to this type of accreditation, it ensures that this beach is also an excellent place for bathing
