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.

BINEVENAGH AND COASTAL LOWLANDS LANDSCAPE PARTNERSHIP

In 2020 the Landscape Partnership was launched, a £3.4 million Heritage Lottery Funded project with the vision to  “Celebrate and connect local people with their unique landscape and heritage to build sustainable and resilient communities.” Projects over the five years of the landscape partnership are focused around the themes of the natural environment, defense and historic environment, outdoor recreation and the local community.
