This photo is taken from high at the top of the Pass, in the purple hills, looking down towards Maghera Beach, and Loughros Point, with the Glen River running alongside the road in the valley.

They provide a barrier between the south of the county, such as Donegal Town and Ballyshannon, and the towns to the north and west such as Dungloe and Letterkenny. The road between the two parts of the county goes through the Barnesmore Gap.
Barnesmore, County Donegal, Ireland. Folklore has it that the railway was responsible for reintroducing the beech tree to Donegal.
