THE BINEVENAGH AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY
Binevenagh AONB was designated in 2006. This is a re-designation and extension of the area previously designated in 1966 as the North Derry AONB. The distinctive headland of Binevenagh with its dramatic cliffs marks the western limit of the Antrim basalt plateau. From the Gortmore viewpoint there are spectacular panoramic views of Magilligan and Inishowen, Islay and Jura in Scotland, and Mussenden Temple and Martello Tower in the distance.
